With a few changes, THE WOMEN’S MARCH could have been written about current events.
In 1913, American women were campaigning for suffrage: the right to vote. A few states had already passed laws doing that and a couple more were in the process. But leaders in the program decided that in order to be effective, it had to be a federal program, not up to individual states.
After other efforts failed, including trying to talk to elected officials who could make the change, the women began several plans to accomplish their mission. They spoke at gatherings, passed out flyers, wrote articles, and tried to question candidates about their position on women’s suffrage public forums,. They finally decided to hold a march in Washington DC the day before Woodrow Wilson’s inauguration in March 1913.
It wasn’t only men who opposed them. There were conflicts between the states and federal factions. There were a lot of prominent women, mostly wealthy, powerful ones, who liked things the way they were. Many women from the South (and from the North, as well) objected to including Black women. (Black men had the right to vote but laws in the South enacted after reconstruction made it extremely difficult for most of them to do so.)
Officials in DC refused to grant them a permit for their march, then wanted to move it to a different location, and refused to provide adequate police protection. They were refused the right to use the seats that were being set up for the inagural parade the next day.
One strong group staged a march from New York to DC to join the March.
Jennifer Chiaverini catalogues the logistics of putting the program together from the perspectives of three different women, all of whom were actually involved: Young and experience organizer Alice Paul, librarian and labor advocate Maud Malone, and ex-slave and journalist Ida B. Wells-Barnett.
Woodrow Wilson, former governor of New Jersey and president of Princeton University,was strongly opposed to the idea. He was also a racist who “reversed decades of racial progress” in US government policy through systematic racism.
The Nineteenth Amendment granting the right for women to vote wasn’t ratified until August 1918.
Paul offered a version of the Equal Rights Amendment to Congress in 1923. It finally passed in March 1972 with a seven-year-deadline for states to ratify it. In January 2020, the thirty-eighth state ratified it. The next month, the US House of Representatives voted jointly 232-182 to remove the time limit. It still has not happened.
Chiaverini’s historical novels provide a lot of details about actual events, helping readers better understand not only the outcomes but also the many people and steps involved beforehand. They are well-researched, both easy-to-read and mind-opening. ( )

While this was an excellent account of three members of the Woman’s Suffrage Movement, it didn’t have the punch that Resistance Women had. It read more like non-fiction than it did historical fiction. I learned a lot about three of the leaders of the Vote for Women movement in the early 20th century. Alice Paul, Ida Be Wells and Maud Malone were daringly brave women and I recommend it to anyone concerned with the early leaders of the Woman’s Movement. ( )
