From Suffrage to the Senate: America's Political Women: An Encyclopedia of Leaders, Causes & Issues is a must have resource for all library collections. This dynamic, two-volume reference work explores American women’s path to political power and social equality from the struggle for the right to vote and the abolition of slavery to the first African American woman in the U.S. Senate and beyond.

A record-breaking number of women ran for office in the 2018 elections, and those election results sent a record-breaking number of women to Congress in 2019.

This Congress also features a record number of women of color, a record number of non-incumbent women, the first Native American woman, the first Muslim woman, and the youngest woman ever elected to congress.
With an emphasis on modern pioneers from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds such as Kristen Gillibrand, Barbara Comstock, Maxine Waters, Nikki Haley, Pramila Jayapal, Lisa Murkowski, and Kamala Harris, From Suffrage to the Senate covers individuals, organizations, movements, publications, milestones, legislative victories, and court cases that have changed the face of American politics. The in-depth coverage also traces the political heritage of the abolition, labor, suffrage, temperance, and reproductive rights movements.

Highlights from this new fourth edition:

  • Completely updated to include 2018 election results, with more than 50 brand new entries.
  • Entries include new information on a wide range of important court cases and legislation along with many new topical entries.
