How did the suffragists win the vote? Lucinda Robb and Rebecca Boggs Roberts, heirs to two prominent political families, explain their strategies and tactics in The Suffragist Playbook: Your Guide to Changing the World.


“This idea of taking a cause, a march on Washington, that was the suffragists' idea. It's now so common that we just think of it as a traffic headache, but it had never been done before in this way. The idea of a political march through the corridors of federal Washington, from the legislative branch to the executive branch — that was Alice Paul's idea.”






📚 THIS WEEK ON BOOKNOTES+Theodore Bilbo (1877-1947) served twice as governor of Mississippi and was elected to the U.S. Senate three times. He was a liberal, a strong supporter of FDR's New Deal and a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
