Women's Suffrage

Basically I was surprised there was not a list for the (American or British) suffrage movement.

BookLovingLady The original suffragette is of course Mary Wollstonecraft... See for instance an article in 'The Guardian'.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Katharine - did you intend this list to be for fiction, non-fiction, or both? Because both are on it.


message 3: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart One particular person is going around changing the titles on other people's Listopia lists!

Quite annoying. I have changed this title back to the list creator's original title.


message 4: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart This person is also erasing relevant keywords. I noticed just now that "nonfiction," "fiction" and "non-fiction" were erased in favor of a keyword which is likely to be unhelpful to anyone: "fiction-and-nonfiction."

Hello! I intended for both.

Thanks so much! I have no idea who is altering lists, why on earth would they want to do that anyway? As long as nobody alters my Jane Austen: the "Horrid" novels list I'm fine though.


message 7: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart No problem! If you notice any changes you don't want to that list or any other, let me know and I can change them back to their original format.

I don't know what the official rules are, but it seems that Listopia etiquette has always dictated that librarians not go around changing other active users' list titles and descriptions, at least not without asking permission or commenting that they have done so.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It is certainly bad Listopia etiquette, but I don't think it's technically against the rules.

Nancy L Owens I added Seneca Falls Inheritance byMiriam Grace Monfredo. This title is the first in the Glynis Tryon mystery series. As you can see from the title the setting is Seneca Falls, New York.
I was delighted to find this list on Women's Suffrage. I am in an F2F book club which meets at Coldwater Books in Tuscumbia, Alabama. In 2019 in honor of Alabama's Bicentennial we have been reading books with an Alabama connection--12 months of a theme.
We have started the planning for 2020. We will set aside four months for a mini-theme: two fiction and two non-fiction books about a person, a place, a decade, a subject, etc. One of our members suggested the Suffrage Movement as a theme. That's why i was excited to find this list--with non-fiction, fiction, & children's books!
I shall visit the list now and again to see what's new. If it is like most lists it contains titles that do not fit the criteria for the list. But previous comments about the NAME of the list being changed---wow i did not even know that was possible! Maybe the person who did it does not know the definition of suffrage. Perhaps he thought it was an incorrect spelling of suffering.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Any GR Librarian can edit Listopias, including their name. (Also: add tags, add or change list description, remove duplicates, remove individual books.)


message 11: by Nancy L Owens (new)

Nancy L Owens I recently watched a panel discussion on American History TV (C-SPAN3):
Role of Men in the Women's Suffrage Movement | C-SPAN.org
https://www.c-span.org/video/?465423-...
There were 3 authors each of whom had written at least one book about the suffrage movement.
2 of them were already on the List when i checked today:
1. Gilded Suffragists: The New York Socialites Who Fought for Women's Right to Vote by Johanna Neuman.
2. Why They Marched: Untold Stories of the Women Who Fought for the Right to Vote by Susan Ware
and i added to this List the one not already here:
3. Suffragents Tpb: How Women Used Men to Get the Vote by Brooke Kroeger. I THINK the "odd" Tpb in the title signifies that the edition is a trade paperback.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I see we have an author's circle boosting the top book.

*sigh* ... Can't Goodreads think of something to prevent spammers? It would certainly be very helpful...


message 14: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart At least it's on topic! I hate when people vote irrelevant books onto lists. This one at least is about women's suffrage and was released by an actual publisher.


message 15: by Nancy L Owens (new)

Nancy L Owens I added The Hidden History of the War on Voting: Who Stole Your Vote and How to Get It Back by Thom Hartmann.

Here is the "comment" which i posted to my want to read and suffrage shelves. GR will call my comment a "review".

   The Florence-Lauderdale Public Library is having a series of programs about voting rights for African-Americans and Women:
https://www.flpl.org/votingrights/
   
I noticed that ( as of now ) there was nothing scheduled about the voting rights of Native Americans.
 
I googled "Native Americans + voting" and among the results was one which appeared to have info on a BOOK:
The Unique Struggles of Women and Native Americans to Vote | History News Network
( note: that is the title of the article, it is NOT the title of the book )
http://hnn.us/article/174249
  
  hnn is the History News Network which I have never heard of but I intend to noodle around on the website.
   
The book is:  The Hidden History of the War on Voting: Who Stole Your Vote and How to Get It Back by Thom Hartmann 

I intend to add this book to the Women's Suffrage List in GR Listopia:
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/3... 
   
  And this book will be a candidate book for my F2F book club 4-month theme read on Suffrage (Jun-Sep 2020).
   
  BTW:  The book was just published and per GR is paperback and 192 pages.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The more I see that author's ring book at the top, the less I want to read it. Which is unfortunate for it because I read plenty of historical fiction. (Law of unintended consequences at work.)


message 17: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Someone (not the list creator) changed the title of the list, so I reverted it back to the original.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Oh, that person who goes around adding "fiction and non-fiction" to lists? Sheesh, she drives me nuts.


message 19: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Yes, the same person. That's why we have a keyword section!


message 20: by Nancy L Owens (new)

Nancy L Owens I added The Man From St. Petersburg by Ken Follett. It is an historical novel set mostly in London shortly before WW1.
A subplot involves the Suffrage Movement in London. The daughter of an Earl joins the movement.
