Rebecca Boggs Roberts and Lucinda Robb, Co-Authors of The Suffragist Playbook: Your Guide to Changing the World - Episode 2106


Our guests today on the Success InSight Podcast are Rebecca Boggs Roberts and Lucinda Robb.

With the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment and with the Election in the US, now nearly two weeks behind us, and our nation set to swear in its first female (and woman of color) Vice-President, The Suffragist Playbook: Your Guide to Changing the World, (Candlewick Press, October 27th, 2020) by authors Rebecca and Lucinda, fittingly takes its place, alongside what will now be remembered as a historic election day for women.

The book is both a practical guide to becoming a change-maker AND a look back at the struggle for women’s rights; written as a tribute to their mothers and grandmothers.

The book gives specific advice on how to use the tactics and lessons learned by our foremothers to push forward contemporary agendas—tips include “know your audience,” “craft your image or others will do it for you,” “use your network,” and “steal ideas that work.”

Each secret in The Suffragist Playbook: Your Guide to Changing the World, is tied to a particular woman including Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, and Ida B. Wells.
