The Women Who Won the Right to Vote  |

This fall, a new book, “Bold & Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote,” pairs vibrantly painted portraits of early women’s-rights activists by Maira Kalman with text by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, of New York, that outlines these women’s contributions to history. The book covers a wide range of women: Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a young mother who organized one of the first conventions for suffragists, in Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848; Sojourner Truth was a former slave who advocated for women of color; Jovita Idár, a Texas-born journalist, became the first president of the League of Mexican Women. Kalman’s energetic hand brings to life stories of tenacity and resolve that span the seventy-year-long suffragette movement and beyond. Senator Gillibrand reminisces about her first female role models—her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother—and challenges the new generation of young activists: “You are the suffragists of our time. What would you change if you could?”

See below for a few of Kalman’s paintings from the book:
