Through period photos, drawings, and gripping narrative, this book chronicles the tumultuous 80-year history of the women's suffrage movement in America.
Readers are introduced to the brave and dogged women who spent their lives advancing the movement, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Susan B. Anthony.
Through countless marches, demonstrations, and lobbying, the inventiveness of these heroines eventually earned women the right to vote in America.
This book is part of the "Crossroads America" series, which highlights specific periods and events in America's past and explains how they shaped our country. Featuring lavish illustrations, period artwork, drawings and photographs, the visual appeal alone is enough to engage young readers.
