"To the young women of Massachusetts who enjoy the fruits of the labors of those whose names are recorded in these pages I dedicate this book with the hope that since they find the path so well opened to them for better educational, social, and political advantages, they may bear in mind how much the woman's rights movement has done to clear the way"

Susan B. Anthony's home commonwealth of Massachusetts was an early leader in the movement. In this work Harriet Hanson Robinson (1825–1911) traced American female voting rights activism back to 1774 and the pen of Abigail Adams. Robinson titled her final chapter "Results of Thirty Years of Agitation."
