  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 August #1
    *Starred Review* In a time when women's-suffrage histories are finally in abundance, Quinn's illustrated compendium stands out (and not only through its vivid illustrations). With language that pulls no punches, she tells the story of women's fight for equality, from the example set by the Haudenosaunee to the riot grrrl movement and the founders of Black Lives Matter. Spread throughout the volume are 100 artworks by 100 women artists, widely varying in style. These illustrations bring Quinn's dynamic text to life even more, highlighting figures like activist Sojourner Truth, artist Mary Cassatt, and The Feminine Mystique author Betty Friedan. The decades-long struggle for the vote is compellingly told via both historical scenes and brief biographies. Quinn eschews some of the typical stories and brings in the Native women who were the first World Champions of Basketball, the difference between "suffragist" and "suffragette," the birth of feminist art history, and Audre Lorde and the role of queer women in the feminist movement. At the centenary of the Nineteenth Amendment, this striking book reminds us of the thousands of women who got us where we are, and makes us want to be counted among them in the future.Women in Focus: The 19th in 2020 Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
