Description

Author Anne B. Gass presents a lively account of Maine native Florence Brooks Whitehouse’s efforts to win women voting rights in the decisive final years of the campaign, (1914-1920). Considered radical for picketing the White House, Florence Brooks Whitehouse helped win women suffrage against a backdrop of conservative views of women’s roles, political intrigues, WWI, and the 1918 influenza epidemic. Anne Gass is Florence Brooks Whitehouse’s great-granddaughter.  Fully footnoted and indexed, the book contains many photographs and period “cartoons.” 294 pp., softcover. Signed by the author!
