FRONT DOOR LOBBY by Maud Wood Park


Email this review


Maud Wood Park, who for many years worked side by side with Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Helen Gardener, has set down her thoughtful and yet lively remembrance of the years of the Woman Suffrage movement, culminating in the adoption of the 19th Amendment. Her stories of Washington life and the activities of one of history's longest and strongest lobbies make this a welcome addition to the nation's informal political literature. Her observations on the tactics best designed to accomplish controversial legislation make fascinating reading as the real significances of the enfranchisement of women unfold in the perspective of later developments. Male readers may wriggle a bit, but the women of the world will find this one a gem.
