US Women’s Equality Day

It’s a Friday in August and I really wanted to do another post to wrap up women in translation, but then I saw this. Instead, I offer you a reading list of the books on women in politics in the US for this Femme Friday.

The reason today is the US Women’s Equality Day is simple, this was the day that Congress granted women in the US the right to vote in 1920. I threw in a few books that cover before we had the right to vote for two reasons. One is that they talk about getting this right and the second is that they talk about what drove them to want the right to vote.

96 years later, women in the US are on the cusp of even bigger changes, breaking more glass ceilings every day. Perhaps we’ll see a day when there aren’t any left.
