"It was a tiny ad placed in an obscure newspaper. The Seneca County Courier, a weekly paper delivered to farms in the cold country where New York State meets Canada, ran just three sentences in its edition for July 14, 1848. The simple announcement invited women to a discussion of "the social, civil, and religious rights of women."

The Moschovitis Group and publisher ABC-CLIO celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention--the beginning of the American women's rights movement--with the publication of A History of the American Suffragist Movement.

Written by acclaimed women's history expert Doris Weatherford, this landmark book chronicles the history of the women's suffrage movement, one of the most dramatic political battles fought in the United States. A foreword by Geraldine Ferraro, who made history in 1984 when she was nominated as the first woman vice presidential candidate on a national ticket, links the story of the suffragists to the contemporary status of women's rights and the current political scene. Full of photos highlighting the people and events that shaped the movement, A History of the American Suffragist Movement is an inspiring tribute to the women who struggled so hard to extend freedom and equality to half of the American people.
