Rider University releases cookbook in suffragist tradition

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and women obtaining the right to vote, the Gail Bierenbaum Women’s Leadership Council at Rider University has released “The Rider University Women’s Suffrage Centennial Cookbook.”

Assembled in the tradition of the suffragist cookbooks of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Rider’s cookbook honors the courage and accomplishments of the suffragists and offers the personal messages of contemporary women on the importance of voting and being an engaged citizen.

{{AdGroup18}} The book, dedicated to the vote, contains close to 100 recipes submitted by women from around the country – elected officials, Rider alumnae, students, faculty and staff, and friends of the university. Lucienne Beard, executive director of the Alice Paul Institute, and Sara Cureton, executive director of the New Jersey Historical Commission, both leaders of NJ Women Vote: the 19th Amendment at 100, are also contributors.

Copies of the 185-page, softcover cookbook may be purchased for $19.20, plus shipping, online at or by calling 609-896-5000, x7032. All proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will fund scholarship assistance for women attending Rider University.
