Praise for Dr. Dubois newest book, “Suffrage-Women’s Long Battle for the Vote”:

“Ellen DuBois tells us the long drama of women’s fight for the vote, without privileging polite lobbying over radical disobedience—or vice versa. In so doing, she gives us the gift of a full range of tactics now, and also the understanding that failing to vote is a betrayal of our foremothers and ourselves.”
—Gloria Steinem

“Comprehensive and well-paced. . . . DuBois rightly focuses on the colorful personalities that defined the distinct eras of suffragism, and effectively marshals a wealth of source material. This thorough, evenhanded presentation offers valuable lessons for readers interested in women’s rights and the history of progressive activism in America.”
Publishers Weekly
