August 2020 marked the centenary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which guaranteed and protected women's constitutional right to vote across the United States.A Vote for Women is a joint venture between the Women's Vote Centennial Initiative (WVCI)--an organization created to share information and stimulate activities around the country to mark this centenary--and the publisher St James's House, and has been produced to celebrate this landmark centenary.

This fully illustrated, beautifully designed hardback book charts the history of the women's movement's fight to claim the vote, and the advances that have resulted from that victory.

In addition to relaying the extensive history of US women's suffrage, the book brings together key stories of current best practice in the field of equality and women's issues. It also offers an insight into Congress and the major US government departments, outlining their current activities and campaigns, and exploring the contributions that these departments have made in shaping the United States of today.

Researched, written, and designed to the highest of standards, with major contributions from the likes of the National Park Service and the National Women's History Museum, and a detailed selection of archival photography, A Vote for Womenis being promoted as part of the WVCI's ongoing national celebrations, which have been extended into 2021 due to the impact of Covid-19 and the desire to bring the centenary story to as wide an audience as possible.
