Gilded Suffragists: The New York Socialites who Fought for Women's Right to Vote - Johanna Neuman

Just when I find myself thinking that I might be too unfair to Neuman, the book does a turn. The fifth and sixth chapters barely addressed suffrage and were more about society women who embraced "first wave" feminism, which had me thinking that my real issue lay with a misleading subtitle. But then she pivots back to suffrage and my previous complaints become salient once more.
