In their co-authored book, Women Will Vote: Winning Suffrage in New York State
(Cornell University Press, 2017), Susan Goodier
and Karen Pastorello
examine the many distinct, yet interconnected, groups that fought for women’s suffrage in New York State before 1917. New York produced some of the most well-known figures in suffrage history, including Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, but Goodier and Pastorello have dedicated chapters to the activism of rural, black, working-class, and radical women alongside the supportive role played by men. Taking into account the innovative techniques and technologies employed by suffragists across the state, Goodier and Pastorello offer an in-depth exploration into one of the most important social movements in U.S. history.
