The Woman Suffrage Cook Book
Originally published in 1886, this collection of recipes and tips and tricks is a volume published almost entirely by women for women. The book was launched to raise funds for the women’s suffrage movement.
Included in the long list of contributors are the names of housewives, doctors, political writers, and prominent suffragists of the time. Contained in this volume are not just the instructions for preparing classics like “Rebel Soup,” “Election Cake,” or “Gravy as Mother Did it,” but also tips for plain living and high thinking.
The collective effort in compiling, publishing, and distributing this ground-breaking cook book bolstered practical skills for the women involved, and affirmed their ability.
