University Press Colorado, 2005.
Jeannette Rankin, the first woman elected to Congress, stands tall among American icons. The representative from Montana won her seat at a time when women didn't have the right to vote in most states. Her firm stances inspired both admiration and fury across party lines, and she gained nearly canonical status among feminists and pacifists. Revealing her complexities along with her accomplishments, Jeannette Rankin: A Political Woman will be the definitive biography of this pathbreaking politician for years to come.
