The Suffragents is the untold story of how some of New York’s most powerful men formed the Men’s League for Woman Suffrage, which grew between 1909 and 1917 from 150 founding members into a force of thousands across thirty-five states.

Brooke Kroeger explores the formation of the League and the men who instigated it to involve themselves with the suffrage campaign, what they did at the behest of the movement’s female leadership, and why.

Brooke Kroeger is a journalist, author and professor of journalism at New York University, where she directs the Global and Joint Program Studies.

The Suffragents (2017) is her fifth book.
