Book Discussion Instructions:

Each book discussion will be 150-160 words, using correct grammar and spelling.

Make sure to use specific examples, and provide proper citation.

Limit the use of quoted material to one per post.  I am more interested in what you are able to get from the reading.  Do not use quotes of more than two lines.

Make sure that you identify the author of the book, and cite the relevant page number for quoted, paraphrased, and summarized details used.

Please answer the following questions:

How was feminism defined in the early 20th century, according to Jean Matthews?  How does the struggle for the vote relate to the ideas of feminism?
