Finish the Fight!: The Brave and Revolutionary Women Who Fought for the Right to Vote

by Veronica Chambers Author

In this collaboration between Versify and the New York Times, author Veronica Chambers sets out to tell the often untold stories of the women who fought and won the right to vote by advocating for the 19th amendment. On the one hundredth anniversary of that fight, it's long past time we honor the women who fought for so many others to receive the franchise. There are some familiar names of course: Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. But there were many others from more diverse backgrounds who fought tirelessly and have received less recognition. In this book, find the stories of people like Yankton Dakota Sioux writer Zitkála-Šá, or Mary Eliza Church Terrell, who cofounded the National Association of Colored Women (NACW), or Mabel Ping-Hua Lee, who, at just sixteen years old, helped lead the biggest parade in history to promote the cause of suffrage. A vital retrospective on the anniversary of one of the biggest moments in American political history.
