Review of "The Perfect 36"

The American Revolution changed women's roles, but they were still considered Femme Covert, meaning they virtually had no rights. The first suffrage protest was held in Seneca, New York in 1848 and passed a dozen resolutions demanding equality. Two pioneers of the suffrage movement were Elizabeth Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, but there were hundreds of others. On August 24, 1920, Tennessee's governor signed the 36th state ratification and gave women the vote. This book dramatically bespeaks the struggles of suffrage. Enduring protests, our nation continues its struggle for equality. 4 Stars
