There is a long history behind women's rights in the United States. The struggle to win the right to vote took place over a period exceeding 70 years. The birth of the woman suffrage movement in the second half of the nineteenth century began the process that led to sweeping social changes for women, and this book chronicles that river of change. How the Vote was Won begins at a time in history when America was cloaked in civil unrest. In the years before and after the Civil War, awareness of social inequality led to the rise of one of the strongest forces in the suffrage battle: coalitions of women banding together for equal rights. How the Vote Was Won: The Story of Woman Suffrage and Beyond shines a light on the struggles, setbacks and ultimate triumph of the woman suffrage movement, and illuminates the time span from the Seneca Falls conference in 1848 to the casting of the winning vote for the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920.
