abstract
The first book in the Women's Suffrage and the Struggle for Democracy series provides a nuanced view of women's fight for the vote at a federal level. Acclaimed historian Joan Sangster shows that the struggle for equality included gains and losses, inclusions and exclusions, depending on a woman's race, class, and location in the nation.
