Publisher Description

One City. One Movement. A World of Stories.

Stories from Suffragette City is a collection of short stories that all take place on a single day: October 23, 1915. It’s the day when tens of thousands of women marched up Fifth Avenue, demanding the right to vote in New York City. Thirteen of today's bestselling authors have taken this moment as inspiration to raise the voices of history and breathe fresh life into their struggles and triumphs.

The characters depicted here, some well-known, others unfamiliar, each inspire and reinvigorate the power of democracy. We follow a young woman who is swept up in the protests when all she expected was to come sell her apples in the city. We see Alva Vanderbilt as her white-gloved sensibility is transformed over the course of the single fateful day. Ida B. Wells battles for racial justice in the women's suffrage movement so that every woman's voice can be heard. Each story stands on its own, but together Stories From Suffragette City becomes a symphony, painting a portrait of a country looking for a fight and ever restless for progress and equality.

“While enjoyable, I was disappointed believing there would be some true stories in here, which was entirely a misunderstanding on my part. While there are several actual historical figures these are all fictitious stories.”
“The topic is very interesting as were some of the stories. Others were ok.”
“This was the first book I ever won on Instagram. I'm so glad I did. At first, I was not. When I found out about this book, I thought it would be stories of the suffrage movement. As I started reading, it was short stories. The first two chapters ended and I was, "WTF?!" And I felt duped again with another book of short stories that I have come to hate to read. Then, the third chapter came and I loved it. After that, the stories started to intertwine with each other. The second chapter that just straight up ended with a missing child shows up in other stories. Things start happening in stories that show up in different stories. And I got to the end, completely into this book. I loved the stories and how it went and what an interesting way to tell the story of the biggest parade for Women's Suffrage in NYC. Since it was historical fiction, I learned things like the Armenian Massacre and how the black women were treated (even though I kind of knew some of this, just not to the extent of it). I learned about the labor Orphan Train...whoa. I learned more about the Vanderbilt's and the Tiffany's. It really was great. My issues stem from some of the way the writers wrote is just not my cup of tea. The story called Siobhan was a prime example. I didn't really understand it's importance. I mean, I get it, but meh. I didn't like how the first two chapters ended and we never really circled back to that minister and those kids. However, I would completely recommend this book. As a women who votes in almost ALL elections because I knew women went through hell to get that right (especially if you weren't extremely rich), I loved these stories. Yes, they were fiction, but it tells what women went through from very different perspectives during that time period.”
