The United States of America is almost 250 years old, but American women won the right to vote less than a hundred years ago. And when the controversial nineteenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution-the one granting suffrage to women-was finally ratified in 1920, it passed by a mere one-vote margin. The story of women's suffrage is epic, frustrating and as complex as the women who fought for it. Illustrated with portraits, period cartoons and other images, ROSES AND RADICALS celebrates this captivating yet overlooked piece of American history and the women who made it happen.
