    Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ Received an arc from Net Galley for an honest review.Expected Release: August 6th 2019 I never learned how truly important it was to vote until my senior year of high school in my advanced placement government class.

    I wanted so much more from this book, but it reads like a middle school text book.

    I received a free copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Vote a terrible thing to waste is a great way to introduce an entire generation to the idea of fighting for voting rights especially for women. This book provides a very concise history of the women and men who fought for women's suffrage. I think this would be a helpful book in a lot of middle and high school classes in instructing students about the legacy of women in history.

    I really enjoyed reading this book even more than I had anticipated. I could see excerpting this for classroom use, but I could not justify reading the entire thing. For instance, I think certain chapters would pair nicely with a unit on social justice or a civil rights movement unit. I learned many new things from this book and I really enjoyed it!

    I think this book is so important for women to read. To understand what women dealt with when it came to our rights to vote. I already knew some of the information from quick lessons in history classes or my mom discussing it. But the book definitely was a refresher.
