Publisher's Summary

One city. One movement. A world of stories.

Stories from Suffragette City is a collection of short stories that all take place on a single day: October 23, 1915. It’s the day when tens of thousands of women marched up Fifth Avenue, demanding the right to vote in New York City. Thirteen of today's best-selling authors have taken this moment as inspiration to raise the voices of history and breathe fresh life into their struggles and triumphs.

The characters depicted here, some well-known, others unfamiliar, each inspire and reinvigorate the power of democracy. We follow a young woman who is swept up in the protests when all she expected was to come sell her apples in the city. We see Ava Vanderbilt as her white-gloved sensibility is transformed over the course of the single fateful day. Ida B. Wells battles for racial justice in the women's suffrage movement so that every woman's voice can be heard. Each story stands on its own, but together Stories from Suffragette City becomes a symphony, painting a portrait of a country looking for a fight and ever restless for progress and equality.

Fantastic set of short stories

For me this collection of short stories is a perfect example of how historical fiction can inform further historical enquiry.
If you enjoy historical fiction and have an interest in Suffrage history - highly recommend
