Summary
  • "Vote and Voice: Women's Organizations and Political Literacy, 1915-1930 is the first book-length study to address the writing and speaking practices of members of women's political organizations in the decade after the suffrage movement. During those years, women still did not have power within deliberative and administrative organs of politics, despite their recent enfranchisement. Because they were largely absent from diplomatic circles and political parties, post-suffrage women's organizations developed widespread, cumulative rhetorical practices of public discourse to push for reform within traditional politics."
  • "Extending contemporary understandings of women's political literacy in the post-suffrage era, Vote and Voice is historically significant as well as pedagogically beneficial for instructors who connect rhetorical education with public participation by integrating writing and speaking skills into a curriculum that aims to prepare educated students and active citizens. The volume is enhanced by seven illustrations."--Jacket
