Slide 0: How Women Won the Vote
How Women Won the Vote
In time to celebrate the 100th anniversary of a women's right to vote in America comes How Women Won the Vote: Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, and Their Big Idea, a riveting story of the two trailblazers who planned the historic Women's March of 1913, paving the way for the passage of the 19th amendment—from Newbery Honor Medalist Susan Campbell Bartoletti. Get immersed in the excitement and thrill of a country undergoing dramatic social and political change! Meet the women who weren't afraid to use radical tactics, pull off a huge parade, picket President Woodrow Wilson outside the White House, go to jail, go on hunger strikes, and fight until a federal amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified.

Look at photos and illustrations (by Ziyue Chen) that put you right there, during a brilliantly planned and choreographed march and pageant demanding an amendment to the constitution of the United States! The Women's March of 1913 was an incredible sight to behold: over 5,000 suffragists marching, 9 bands, 4 mounted brigades, 26 floats—all marching past 250,000 spectators. There was even a riot! How Women Won the Vote is perfect for the many historical institutions and educational organizations who are celebrating the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment and for Women's History Month promotions.
