Johanna Neuman is a historian, author and award-winning journalist whose new book, Gilded Suffragists: The New York Socialites Who Fought for Women’s Right To Vote, is already winning rave reviews. Due out in the fall of 2017 from New York University Press, Gilded Suffragists tells the story of New York’s most glamorous women – with last names like Astor, Belmont, Harriman and Vanderbilt – and chronicles their impact on the women’s suffrage movement. Covered for every aspect of their lives – from their French fashion to the Beaux Arts décor – they had become the media celebrities of their day. She argues that when they leveraged their social fame for political power, they awakened public interest and energized the Votes for Women campaign, giving it the kind of buzz that only celebrity endorsements can provide.
