Suffragists Speak: Hand-Lettered Quotes To Celebrate The 100th Anniversary of Women's Right To Vote
Suffragists Speak celebrates the 100th Anniversary of women's right to vote in the United States through the words of the women who were engaged in the fight. Artist and author Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord chose 14 powerful quotes from both well- and lesser known activists and hand-lettered them in a bold and lively script. Accompanying each quotation is information about its author and its origin.
Using the first Woman’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848 as the starting point, the journey to suffrage for women in the United States took 72 years. It was long, arduous, and complex. Issues of race and class arose as generations of diverse women grappled with abolition, immigration, and temperance, as well as the question of when and if to compromise. Suffragists Speak offers a deeper understanding of the women whose lives were dominated by the struggle. Since the fight for equal rights continues, their words still resonate with meaning and inspiration.
