Woman Suffrage and Politics, The Inner Story of the Suffrage Movement by Carrie Chapman Catt (1859 - 1947) and Nettie Rogers Shuler (1862 - 1939).

Written after after the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment and published in 1923, "This book's essential contribution must be sought in its revelation of the bearing of American politics upon the question of woman suffrage." The book traces the history of the women's suffrage movement in the United States from 1848 through 1920. ( J. M. Smallheer)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/womansuffragepol0000catt
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

The foreword sounds great! Just one minor note: at 2:45, "to suggest that she would normally," you say "to suggest that she would not normally."

Well, good to know that I need a new intro/outro for my section now that it has a new number... :?

Sorry, I was hoping you hadn't started yet, but no need for a new intro. The section numbers are not in the intro/outro, just the Chapter. For the Foreward, I just said Title by Authors "Foreward." You can do the same with the Appendix. Just change the section number in the filename.
