One hundred years ago American women fought for and won an equal voice at the ballot box with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. This happened thanks to the unrelenting activism of women in the US and around the rest of the world, who shifted the notion of women's suffrage from fringe idea to reality. Although that was a huge achievement, successive generations of global activists have had to combat enormous gaps in women's rights that have continued to exist today. The first of its kind, this fully illustrated history of women's rights offers a gripping account of the struggle for equality across the globe. In six chapters it covers issues that are critical to women everywhere: the right to vote, reproductive freedom, marital and property rights, workplace equality, oppressive notions of beauty, racial equality, and LGBTQ rights. 'Citizen Woman' takes readers across continents to compare and contrast how women are faring in different cultures and societies. Each chapter is generously illustrated with photographs, archival materials, and documents that provide rich context and helps readers connect deeply with the personal and historic achievements of the past and present. This satisfying and engrossing overview of the women's rights movement offers compelling proof that change is possible for every citizen of the world.
