Summary, etc.: "The story of suffragette Alice Paul and her campaign to win women the right to vote"--

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 June #1
    In 1914, suffragette Alice Paul and her National Woman's Party planned a huge parade down Pennsylvania Avenue to push her cause. At the same time, newly elected President Woodrow Wilson was getting off a train in D.C., expecting a large crowd. But everyone was at the parade! Wilson invited Paul to the White House but told her he had more important problems than the woman's vote. So Paul decided to do what she did as a girl down on the farm: cause trouble. That included laying signature-filled scrolls down the Capitol steps, getting people to send bags of letters to Wilson, and being arrested at the White House. Finally, and with the persuasion of his daughter, Wilson came on board. The story is full of concrete actions and gritty determination; unfortunately, there's no way to know if it's all true. Although there is a short bibliography, the author's note only covers the period after Paul secured Wilson's support. Zhang's lively watercolor and colored-pencil art captures the sense of fun that seems to have been Paul's modus operandi. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
