In Formidable: American Women and the Fight for Equality: 1920-2020, Elisabeth Griffith presents a sweeping, diverse perspective on what happened after women won the right to vote with the Nineteenth Amendment, because it was an incomplete victory. The book shows the breadth and diversity of the women’s movement, in what Hillary Rodham Clinton calls “an essential history of the struggle by both Black and white women to achieve their equal rights.”
