Book News
Historians have long used Britain and the US as models in studying women's enfranchisement; this thorough and very readable reference seeks to shift the focus elsewhere in order to demonstrate the global nature of the demand for women's right to vote. Specific countries from all five continents were chosen either because they had an active suffrage movement or because they provide examples of particular circumstances under which women achieved the vote, such as a relationship between suffrage and nationalism, war, or decolonization. In addition to individual countries, entries include biographies of suffrage activists, terms (e.g., militancy, suffragette), national and international suffrage organizations, events, key suffrage texts, and concepts such as suffrage imagery.
