Citizen She!

The Global Campaign for Women's Voting Rights

An inspiring journey of women’s struggles and victories around the globe as they fought for the right to vote.

Citizen She! tracks the global fight for women’s suffrage from the first pioneers in the eighteenth century to the heroines of today, from American Lucretia Mott to Egypt’s Huda Sha’arawi to China’s Qui Jin. What does it mean to have a vote, and why did women have to fight so hard to get one? How did they fight for it? And why are they still fighting in many countries around the globe? In illuminating the global struggle for women’s rights, the book shows us how far we’ve come–and that there is a lot left to fight for.
