Mr. President, How Long Must We Wait? Alice Paul, Woodrow Wilson and the Fight for the Right to Vote By Tina Cassidy
Softcover, 304 pages
Mr. President, How Long Must We Wait tells the little-known story of the suffragist Alice Paul’s epic eight-year battle with President Woodrow Wilson to win voting rights for all American women. Never before have these two historical figures shared the stage equally and the effect is a page-turning David versus Goliath narrative more resonant than ever as the centennial of the 19th Amendment approaches in 2020. The story highlights the human drama of these real-life characters, from Paul’s perilous prison hunger strikes to Wilson’s moral and physical failings. Readers looking for female heroes and lessons for today’s politics will be inspired by this book.
