  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 January #1
    Gillibrand, New York's junior U.S. senator, opens this picture book with personal memories of the strong women in her family. She then introduces Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Jovita Idár, Alice Paul, Inez Milholland, Ida B. Wells, Lucy Burns, and Mary Church Turrell. These 10 women each receive a superb full-page portrait in Kalman's impressionistic gouache art, accompanied by a relevant declaration ("Never Give Up," "Speak the Truth") and two to three paragraphs of biographical overview with additional spot art. Fast-forward to the Women's March on January 21, 2017, when voices were raised just as they were at the 1913 Women's Suffrage Parade. Brief mentions of additional names from Phillis Wheatley to Maya Lin follow. While this unfortunately lacks source notes and includes the questionable wording that Sojourner Truth "left her owner in 1826" (as if it was just that easy), it's a rousing introduction to these history makers, and the final spread encourages "suffragists of our time" to use their power to "change the world." Grades 2-5. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

A New York Times bestselling author, this is her first book for children.
