Publisher: New York: Hill and Wang, 2006.
Baker, a prolific biographer, offers a series of chapters focusing on those key women in the suffrage movement in whom she saw qualities of "leadership, optimism, stamina, and remarkable longevity." The essay subjects are: Lucy Stone and Henry Blackwell; Susan B. Anthony and the Sisters; Elizabeth Cady Stanton; Frances Willard; Alice Paul and Woodrow Wilson. Her analysis includes a clear delineation of how these leaders also assured the suffrage movement was kept elite and white.
