The Woman Suffrage Cook Book

$ 14.95

The Woman Suffrage Cookbook (1886) was created as a fundraising tool for Massachusetts suffragists, but it also provided a powerful new voice. It communicated with women of all classes in the common language of the cookbook about not only food and domesticity, but also the radical cause of women’s right to vote.

The Woman Suffrage Cookbook tracks changing cooking practices in the United States in the late nineteenth century, changes that mirrored larger transitions in society. The growing forces of industrialization, urbanization, and a variety of social movements—among them women’s suffrage—swept the nation, forever molding her into a new shape. Edited by Mrs. Hattie A. Burr. Hardboard, 170 pages.
