The Suffragist Playbook: Your Guide to Changing the World

authors: Lucinda Robb; Rebecca Boggs Roberts

The decades-long women’s suffrage movement, run almost entirely by women, for women, was an enormous undertaking to radically change the status quo. It led to a permanent and universally accepted outcome, and the suffragists’ hard-won knowledge provides a template that anyone working for change can learn from today. Identifying their tactics also provides an opportunity to tell some of the largely unknown history of the Nineteenth Amendment. The book is broken into chapters, each of which focuses on a secret tactic that suffragists used and features a famous figure or story of the movement.
