Slide 1: Votes for Women Mug
Votes for Women Mug
$26.00
This 12 oz. porcelain Votes for Women Mug comes inside of a gift box. In 1848, a group of outspoken, super smart women gathered for the first ever women's rights convention in Seneca Falls, N.Y. Over two days, they discussed, well demanded, the betterment of women's lives. They didn't realize then that they were igniting an activist blaze that would burn for over a century. Historians point to Seneca Falls' Declaration of Sentiments (which demanded equal social status and legal rights for women) as the kickoff of the women's rights movement worldwide. From Seneca Falls to a presidential nomination, women have made enormous contributions to the world, making it a better, fairer, all-around more awesome place. If there's one thing to say about the accomplishments of women, it is this: we've come far.

Slide 2: Victory for the Vote
Victory for the Vote
$27.95
An inspirational gift for women. In her book, Victory for the Vote: The Fight for Women's Suffrage and the Century that Followed, women's history expert Doris Weatherford offers an engaging and detailed narrative history of women's seven-decade fight for the vote, and the continuing current-day struggle for human rights and equality. Victory for the Vote puts the fight for suffrage into contemporary context by discussing key challenges for women in the decades that followed 1920, such as reproductive rights, the Equal Rights Amendment, and political power.

Victory for the Vote is a celebration of the centennial of the women's right to vote in the U.S. and is an expansion and update of Weatherford's A History of the American Suffragist Movement, published in 1998 in honor of the 150th anniversary of the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, considered to be the beginning of the women’s rights movement in the United States. Take pride in the struggles and accomplishments of strong women, understand and appreciate the Women’s Suffrage Movement and the 19th Amendment, and celebrate feminism and recognize the challenges that still remain on the road to human rights for all.

Foreword by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
