Finnegan's pathbreaking study of woman suffrage from the 1850s to the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920 reveals how activists came to identify with consumer culture and employ its methods of publicity to win popular support through carefully crafted images of enfranchised women as "personable, likable, and modern."

Kathryn Kish Sklar

Selling Suffrage is a most innovative book, and should be required reading for anyone interested in the roots of contemporary political life as well as those seeking a deeper appreciation of women's rise to political prominence in the Progressive Era.
