Teaser Tuesday!

I realized last week that I've been reading the same book for almost a month and I still haven't teased you with it.  So here it is, dangling in front of you, for this month's first Teaser Tuesday!

  1. Grab your current read.*
  2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
  3. Share with us two (2)** "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  4. Share the title and author of the book, so we can investigate on our own if we like the teaser you've given!
  5. Please avoid spoilers!
*To keep this feature periodic, I will be using both teasers from current reads, and from books I've read before, but haven't discussed on this blog.

**Quantity of sentences may vary, depending on how long it takes to finish the thought within those line parameters. Teasers should still make sense!

This week's teaser comes from No Turning Back: The History of Feminism and the Future of Women, by Estelle B. Freedman.  Seeing as how it's also Black History Month, I thought these sentences were particularly appropriate:

"Once again, African American women struggled on several fronts for suffrage, to improve conditions for their race, and to achieve equality with white women.  Black women wanted the vote not only for themselves but also as a way to represent their race in those northern states where blacks could exercise the franchise." 

Curious yet?  Happy teasing!
