From Suffrage to the Senate is a comprehensive and valuable compendium of biographies of leading women in U.S. politics, past and present, and an examination of the wide range of women's movements.

This dynamically illustrated 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. This new edition includes over 150 new entries and a brand new section on trends and demographics of women in politics.

With an emphasis on modern pioneers from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds such as Madeleine Albright, Linda Chavez-Thompson, Shirley Chisholm, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Winona LaDuke, and Patsy Mink, From Suffrage to the Senate covers the 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.

The alphabetically arranged entries include biographies of every woman from across the political spectrum who has served in the U.S. House and Senate, along with women in the Judiciary and the U.S. Cabinet and, new to this edition, biographies of activists and political consultants. Bibliographical references follow each entry. For easy reference, a handy chronology is provided detailing 150 years of women's history.

This up-to-date reference will be a must-purchase for women’s studies departments, high schools and public libraries and will be a handy resource for those researching the key players in women’s politics, past and present.
