This podcast series shows how from 1913 to 1917 many activists came to a new strategy. They decided that bolder tactics and strategies would be necessary if American women were to win the right to vote. Even with this shift in emphasis, many feisty devil-may-care types continued working alongside more traditional types of activists. These audio segments are from Jailed For Freedom by Doris Stevens. Audio by LibriVox. Production by Suffrage Wagon News Channel.

We have been publishing since 2009. March is Women’s History Month. Are you prepared?

2 thoughts on “Podcasts from Doris Stevens’ book, “Jailed for Freedom”

  1. Doris Stevens had a colorful life of her own. Many don’t know this. Her book was published in 1920, I think. Her observations are fresh even if she is in the pocket of the NWP.

  2. Doris Stevens’ book of being jailed for freedom has passed the test of time. There was an edited version in the past, but I love the audio. It has the spirit with which it was written.
