"This book tells the story of how women won the right to vote, and what happened next. Told by historian Bridget Quinn and illustrated throughout by 100 women artists"-- Provided by publisher.
From the first female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation to the first woman to wear pants on the Senate floor, Quinn shines a spotlight on the women who broke down barriers. She shows how, in the hundred years since the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, women have continued to speak out so that all U.S. women truly have a voice in the future of their country.--Adapted from jacket.
