Publisher's Description

The Woman Suffrage Cookbook was the first of several fundraising cookbooks published in support of the movement behind the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Edited and compiled by Hattie A. Burr, it features recipes from prominent suffragists as well as from women eminent in their fields: teachers, lecturers, physicians, ministers, and authors.
Contributors include Mary C. Ames, a successful journalist, who provided a recipe for lobster soup; Alice B. Stockham, the fifth woman in the United States to become a licensed doctor, who sent a recipe for Coraline Cake; and suffragists Mary A. Livermore and Lucy Stone, both of whom supplied complicated recipes for yeast. Other recipes such as Rebel Soup and Mother's Election Cake added a rebellious tone to the compilation. This historic volume offers context for the changing roles of women of the era, who were fighting for their rights outside of the home while still tending to their domestic duties. Women's studies students, women of all generations with an interest in history, and food writers and cooks will appreciate this vintage cookbook.
