Voting Down the Rose is a lively account of Maine native Florence Brooks Whitehouse's efforts to win women voting rights in the decisive final years of the campaign, 1914-1920. Considered radical for picketing the White House, Florence helped win women suffrage against a backdrop of conservative views of women's roles, political intrigues, WWI, and the 1918 influenza epidemic. Paperback; 294 pages.

Author: Anne B. Gass is Florence Brooks Whitehouse’s great-granddaughter and is the author of the new novel, We Demand - The Suffrage Road Trip.
