Songs of the Suffragists: Lyrics of American Feminism from 1850 to 2020

The music of the women’s suffrage movement reflects the culture of change that activists inspired and that inspired activism. The songs of the suffragists reveal the persuasive arguments underpinning their efforts to gain the right to vote and linking their cause to the other activist movements of their time. The lyrics of the pre-Nineteenth Amendment songs foreshadow the arguments of later suffragists, who sought to advance the cause of women’s equality in their own time. Written to commemorate the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment's passage, this book features the lyrics of more than twenty songs: from the 1851 song, "The Bloomer's Complaint" to the 2017 song, "Woman," this book explores the cultural context and enduring themes of feminism in American songs.Enjoy this historical tour of feminist songs from 1850 to 2020, a showcase of the enduring suffragist message, and a call to continue the fight for freedom and equality.
