Susan Ware “Why They Marched”

_0003_march“Untold stories of the women who fought for the right to vote.” A celebrated feminist historian and biographer, Susan Ware is Honorary Women’s Suffrage Centennial Historian at the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America. Ware is also serving as a historical consultant to the PBS program American Experience for a multipart documentary on suffrage and advising singer-songwriter Shaina Taub on a musical based on the life of Alice Paul. Ware tells her story through the lives of nineteen activists, most of whom have long been overlooked.  Ware’s deeply moving stories provide a fresh account of one of the most significant moments of political mobilization in American history.
