Of all the reforms that came out of the progressive era, women's suffrage has the longest history. This forty-eight-page album recovers some of the lost chapters of that history and commemorates the seventy-fifth anniversary of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Photographs, posters, postcards, and letters presented in the book - most from holdings of the Huntington Library - illustrate the story of two generations of activists. Votes for Women presents not only the familiar story of the eastern suffragists but also the less-familiar stories of the western campaigns and the struggles of women in other countries. Among the items featured are a letter from Susan B. Anthony in which she describes her joy at voting (albeit illegally) in 1872; photographs of suffrage marches in New York and California; advertisements linking various products to votes for women; and, suffrage leaflets in German, French, and Italian. This book describes the Huntington's extensive woman suffrage holdings, including the one-thousand-piece Susan B. Anthony Memorial Collection.
