Ellen Carol DuBois is one of the nation's leading historians of women's efforts to gain the right to vote. She attended Wellesley College and Northwestern University, taught at the University of Buffalo, and, for the past three decades, taught at the University of California at Los Angeles. Among her many books on woman suffrage is her most recent work Suffrage: Women's Long Battle for the Vote.

She has also written about women's rights movements internationally and is the co-author of the leading textbook in U.S. women's history, Through Women's Eyes: An American History.
