The suffragist peace, how women shape the politics of war, Joslyn N. Barnhart and Robert F. Trager

Women's suffrage is often recognized as one of the most significant political events of the 20th century. But conventional wisdom has long held that giving women the right to vote has had little effect on our world. The Suffragist Peace shatters this perspective. An authoritative history of the entire century in which women have had the vote, this book shows how the political influence of women at the ballot box has made the world a more peaceful place. Wars have not ended, but this book powerfully demonstrates how women gaining the franchise has contributed to war's decline over the past century
