From the 20,000 women who participated in 1912's Suffrage March along 5th Avenue ("a wonderful spectacle") to first female Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's first day in 1981 ("she suffers fools gracefully"), the history of the women's movement is rich with stories and significant progress. This coffee table book celebrates those who dared to stand for equal rights through a collection of New York Times articles, which begins with the Equal Rights Convention in 1866 and ends with the Time's Up movement in 2018.
The cover features an image from Washington D.C.'s women's march, where, in the crowd of hundreds of thousands, "mothers marched with daughters and granddaughters," wrote the Times, "whole families, including husbands and sons, marched arm in arm." Introduction written by New York Times Gender Issues Editor Susan Chira. Made in Williston, Vermont.
$5 from the purchase of this book goes to Women for Women International, a non-profit organization that provides practical and moral support to women survivors of war.
