Heroines.net is a journey through the Woman Suffrage Movement,
a movement that secured the political freedom of more people
than either the Revolutionary War or the Civil War in the United
States. This is a struggle that has largely been ignored by historians.
The journey takes the movement through a country grappling
with slavery, torn by civil war, and expanding a frontier. It
is a journey faced with the forces of a rising Industrial Age
and corrupt politics. It is a journey filled with friendships,
love, betrayals, undying faith, and lifelong loyalties. It is
a journey filled with its own songs and poetry. It is a journey
of a movement that grows up and steps into the international
arena. It is a journey to victory. It is a journey, the fruition
of which is The American Dream.
The story of the Woman Suffrage Movement unfolds through articles
from suffrage newspapers, letters, poetry and memoirs. Original
commentary seeks to put this material into the context of its
