Celebrating International Women’s Day and the upcoming centennial celebration of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women’s right to vote, Rutgers University Press announced today the publication of “Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote,” in association with the Library of Congress.

The book is the official illustrated companion to the Library of Congress exhibition of the same name and will be published June 4 to coincide with the exhibit’s opening. The exhibition and the book tell the story of the long campaign for women’s suffrage — the largest reform movement in American history — lasting over seven decades. The struggle was not for the fainthearted. For years, determined women organized, lobbied, paraded, petitioned, lectured, picketed and faced imprisonment.
