CHOICE ReviewIn Suffrage, Poulson (Univ. of Scranton) knits together a series of biographical sketches to create a rich tapestry of the diverse experiences of women who led the suffrage movement. Through 26 short chapters, she outlines the steady, organized, and behind-the-scenes political work of well-known leaders such as Carrie Chapman Catt, Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott, the Grimke sisters, Sojourner Truth, and Belva Lockwood. She contextualizes the national struggle with stories of women who worked to overcome institutional gender boundaries in the areas of education and intellectual and spiritual fulfillment to enter professions traditionally limited to men at both the state and regional levels. Poulson also includes the stories of women who participated in petition drives and fundraising initiatives, and those who joined legal battles, altogether portraying a 75-year history winding across the US. The author demonstrates that it was the culmination of these regional experiences that provided the foundation for the innovative tactics used to focus national attention on suffrage. This readable text is best for highlighting primary sources of the period and serves as a good introduction for undergraduates in history, political science, and gender studies. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers, lower-division undergraduates, two-year program students, and professionals. --Angela I. Fritz, University of Notre Dame
