Songs of Suffragists
Songs of the Suffragists: Lyrics of American Feminism from 1850 to 2020
by The League of Women Voters of Berkeley Heights, New Providence & Summit

The music of the women’s suffrage movement reflects the culture of change that activists inspired, and that inspired activism. Songs sung by and about suffragists reveal their persuasive arguments for political equality, and helped link their cause to the other activist movements of their time. Notably, the lyrics of pre-Nineteenth Amendment songs foreshadow the feminist message of later suffragists, who sought to advance the cause of women’s equality in their own times.

This book was started by LWVBHNPS interns Julia Haas and Elizabeth Moshkevich in the spring of 2018 with the help of LWV members Pat Dolan and Susan Ferris Rights. During the spring of 2019 and up until this spring of 2020 LWV member Laura Casteblanco Engehardt and former intern Stephanie Lioudis with help from Bridget Bowen continued, researched, expanded and added to the book to greatly enhance the original publication to make a highly informative and entertaining publication.
