Finish the fight! : the brave and revolutionary women who fought for the right to vote / written by the Staff of The New York Times, including Veronica Chambers [and 5 others] ; portrait illustrations by Monica Ahanonu [and 11 others].

Chambers, Veronica, (author.). Ahanonu, Monica, (illustrator.). New York Times Company, (author.).

Summary:
Who was at the forefront of women's right to vote? We know a few famous names, like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, but what about so many others from diverse backgrounds--black, Asian, Latinx, Native American, and more--who helped lead the fight for suffrage? On the hundredth anniversary of the historic win for women's rights, it's time to celebrate the names and stories of the women whose stories have yet to be told.
