Carrie Chapman Catt: A Public Life
Due largely to the organization and leadership of Carrie Chapman Catt, the bill giving women the right to vote became law within 18 months. With the battle that had consumed nearly half her life finally won, Catt went on to devote the next 25 years to working for peace as the basis of human rights. This biography reveals a public life that was lived with enthusiasm and faith in the human race, and documents the journey of an extraordinary woman whose ideas continue to influence the lives of millions.
What people are saying - Write a review
A well-done, thorough, readable account of Catt's life. For deeper analysis but less biographical detail, see "Carrie Catt, Feminist Politician", by Robert Booth Fowler. For a somewhat unreliable but spirited earlier biography, see the book by Mary Grey Peck.
My book for middle school students is also available--"Carrie Chapman Catt: A Life of Leadership".
