Book Elevates Diverse Voices Of Women's Suffrage
Maybe you can name a few of the leaders of the women's suffrage movement in the United States. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton come to mind.
But how about Ida B. Wells, or the Forten sisters? They got less attention, as members of minority groups.
Sally Roesch Wagner, a scholar of the movement, gathers a wide range of voices together in a new book she edited called Unsung Heroes of the Women's Suffrage Movement. Gloria Steinem wrote a foreword for the book; Sally Roesch Wagner is our guest.
