This audiobook reminds us that women's suffrage in the U.S. is a relatively recent phenomenon--there are women alive today who were born before women could vote. Narrator Amanda Carlin applies her talents to the history of suffragette Alice Paul and the convoluted battle for female suffrage in the U.S. during the administration of Woodrow Wilson. Carlin's voice brings solemnity and drama to the sobering story of Paul's struggle to gain women the right to vote through peaceful protest, picketing, and even hunger strikes. The history of the women's suffrage movement in America is complex, especially when it comes to race and gender politics. Carlin's narration helps keep the details clear for even the casual listener.
