With Courage and Cloth: Winning the Fight for a Womans Right to Vote by Ann BausumTo hear her tell it, Ann Bausum was inspired to write this book because of a childhood introduction to Alice Paul (its her strong gaze, more than anything else, that Ive remembered . . . Plenty of flame remained in her eyes.) In With Courage and Cloth, Bausum pays tribute to the sacrifices and struggles of the suffragists who contributed to the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. After a section giving background information on the movement that seems to have begun with a meeting in Seneca Falls, NY in 1848, this book moves to focus on the period between 1913 and 1920. In those seven years, the momentum was behind the suffrage movement, and it split into two complementary (though not always friendly) groups: Carrie Chapman Catts larger and more conservative National American Woman Suffrage Association and Alice Pauls radical National Womens Party.
With Courage and Cloth is a well-researched and enlightening introduction to the suffrage movement in the United States. The design of the volume reflects the colors of the movement (purple, white, and gold), including purple and gold accents in the many historical photographs. After the main text, there are profiles of significant leaders, a chronology of the movement, a resource guide (including places to visit), source notes, a bibliography, and an index. Clearly, this is an excellent starting point for any young researcher interested in womens suffrage.

12 books that tell kids the fun and inspirational stories behind the women's suffrage movement
A tale of suffragettes and heroes, courage and survival, as war ends, flu sweeps the land — and women get to vote. The Great War is finally coming to a close, and women are going to be able to vote for the first time. Just as stars come one by one to brighten the night sky, so history is made person by person, girl by girl, vote by vote. The follow up to the hugely successful A Girl With A Pearl Earring, Falling Angels is set just after Queen Victoria's death and follows two families who are brought together reluctantly through their daughters' friendship. It looks at the different perspectives of what it meant to be a woman at a time when the suffrage movement was in full swing and is inspired by a London cemetery. During a ceremonial stroll through the graveyard grounds, an act of mourning for the recently deceased Queen Victoria, Maude Coleman and Lavinia Waterhouse meet, forging a fast friendship.
But when it comes to voting, I can. And I will. In the meantime, I'll be distracting myself with these wonderful picture books about the women who.
