Until recently, the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution in 1920 was seen as a watershed in women's political history. The essayists in this collection argue that women's participation in political parties has been much more lengthy and varied than previously thought. Women's different political styles influenced party strategy, changed party structures, and coloured party ideology. From studies of individual women, such as Daisy Harriman, Florence Prag Kahn, and Nina Otero Warren, to examinations of movements, such as Socialist women in California and women's work in presidential campaigns, this book attempts to recover the diversity of women's political commitment, loyalties, and tactics. These timely and engaging essays will be welcomed by students of women's political history.
