Alice Paul featured in The Privilege of Voting

Most people are a bit in the dark about how women won the vote.

Iron Jawed Angels is a great film!

Now learning even more about Alice Paul, and other women of her time is as easy as opening your e-mail.

"The Privilege of Voting" tells the sexy, shocking truth of HOW the suffragettes won the vote.

It is a new historical e-mail series that goes behind the scenes in the lives of eight well-known women from 1912 to 1920 to reveal the many exciting and surprising twists and turns that played into women finally winning the vote in England and America.

The women depicted include two of the most beautiful and outspoken suffragettes -- Alice Paul and Emmeline Pankhurst, along with Edith Wharton, Isadora Duncan, Alice Roosevelt, and two stunning presidential mistresses.

But this is no boring history report! There are weddings and funerals, babies in peril, damsels in distress, war, peace, prohibition, broken hearts and lots of hot affairs on the rocky road to the ballot box.

The best part is it's ALL true!

Presented via e-mail in a unique, sequential, interwoven short-story format called Coffeebreak Readers that makes discovering the delightful heroines of women's suffrage fast and fun!

Each action-packed e-mail episode takes about 10 minutes to read, so they are perfect to enjoy on coffeebreaks, or anytime.
