Summary

Summary

In the 19th century, the duality of the role of women in society became increasingly obvious. Women became more active in the public sphere, while the ""cult of true womanhood"" tried to restore her to her traditional domestic sphere. Early feminists active in the abolition movement increasingly began to compare women's situation with the plight of African-American slaves. Women Claim the Vote explores the development and growth of these viewpoints in the decades leading up to the Civil War.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-These titles offer comprehensive, vivid, and thought-provoking looks at the struggles and triumphs of our Founding Mothers and the women who followed them in shaping our nation. Through succinct, informative text, each heavily illustrated volume incorporates the history of three major groups of people: the Natives, European settlers, and African slaves. Featured quotes from books, articles, letters, and speeches bring the history to life, and "Breakthrough Biography" and "Women of Courage and Conviction" sidebars introduce key historical figures. Readers new to the subject will find quick access to quality information, and history-savvy youngsters may find something new to ponder. Unbiased, engaging writing makes these books excellent additions to most collections.-Sara Saxton, Wasilla Meta-Rose Public Library, Wasilla, AK (c) Copyright 2011.
