Review: Suffrage: Women’s Long Battle for the Vote, by Ellen Carol DuBois
Gayle Gullett is an associate professor emerita of history in the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies at Arizona State University. She specializes in American women’s history, the American West, and urban history. In Becoming Citizens: The Emergence and Development of the California Women’s Movement, 1880–1911 (2000), she examines how California women at the turn of the twentieth century created a social movement that enabled them to win the vote in 1911. She has also published several articles on women and politics in the American West. Her most recent suffrage article is “Winning California: The 1911 Suffrage Victory” (in Western Legal History 30, 2019). From 2003 to 2012, Gullett coedited, with Susan E. Gray, Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies. In 2014, Gray and Gullett published Contingent Maps: Rethinking Western Women’s History and the North American West, an anthology of recently published Frontiers articles that borrows tools from feminist geographers to analyze gender and the West. Gullett is currently working on a book manuscript, “New Women, New Journalism, and a New City: Gender, Modernity, and Los Angeles, 1910–1920.” In this project she investigates how newspaper women, members of diverse communities of women, and communities of print and politics responded to and shaped modern conversations about gender, sexuality, and citizenship.
