To March or to Marry
A historical novel by Violet Snow
In New York City of the early 1900s, two young women find their friendship torn apart when one abandons the dignified, middle-class feminism of their women's club to join suffragettes marching for the vote. Abbie struggles with issues of marriage and motherhood, while Louise seeks independence, but they need each other's help to find their voices in the contentious world of emerging women’s rights.
Visionary feminists Alice Paul and Harriot Stanton Blatch are among the historical figures who make their appearance in this novel about the battle for the vote and the quieter but profound influence of the women’s clubs that gave women tools for changing society.
