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.
