The Suffragents: How Women Used Men to Get the Vote
Brooke Kroeger
Excelsior Editions, September 1, 2017, $24.95
Just in time for the November centennial anniversary of women’s suffrage in
New York, The Suffragents examines men’s roles in the historical feminine
milestone. With the formation of the Men’s League for Woman’s Suffrage in
1909, the league soon grew from 150 founding members to thousands
advocating across over 30 states in 1917. Kroeger details how key members of
the league fought relentlessly to alter the course of history.
