An Election Day tribute to Jeannette Rankin, 100 years after her campaign
Susan B. Anthony, a well-known suffragette, in Rochester, New York. In Laramie, Wyoming, people gathered at a statue of Louisa Swain, the first woman in the United States to vote in a general election.
Kakuk said she wanted her daughters to be able to tell their own children a personal memory from this election.
“I started crying, and they were a little worried,” Kakuk said. “I was just totally overwhelmed that [Rankin’s statue] was already covered in stickers and flowers.”

Beach Reads with Marjorie Preston
Civil Wars” is filled with famous names of the 19th century: Longfellow, Emerson, Dickens, Louisa May Alcott, Helen Keller and poet Robert Browning, with whom Julia waged a bitter feud. Eventually she gained fame with a collection of poetry called “Passion-Flowers,” a scandalous and thinly veiled attack on her husband, and “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” which became an anthem of the Civil War. Julia is presented as a woman imprisoned by the social mores of her era; she went on to become a champion of women’s suffrage, and one of the nation’s first firebrand feminists. This is a juicy and entertaining account of a spirit that ultimately could not be tamed.
Robert Plant: A Life
By Paul Rees; It Books
The “Golden God” of Led Zeppelin authorized this biography, yet the author relies on mates and other interview sources for much of the insight, and poses several questions he then does not answer (i.e., why was the singer’s boyhood nickname “Plonky”?) That quibble aside, here’s a first-rate account of the rock ’n’ roll wailer, a middle-class English boy who fell in love with Elvis and the American blues, and, like millions of kids of the time, began a single-minded pursuit of rock stardom. By age 20, he was playing arenas with Led Zeppelin. Then came the usual wretched excess: drugs, debauchery, backstage mayhem and wrecked hotel rooms. Unlike Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, who died at 32 in a vodka-induced coma, Plant was lucky enough to grow up. Here’s his story – as outsized, extravagant and unique as the singer himself.
