Summary, etc.:
"A bold new collection showcasing the trailblazing individuals who fought for women's suffrage, honoring the Nineteenth Amendment's centennial anniversary. Women Win the Vote! maps the road to the Nineteenth Amendment through compact, readable biographies of nineteen women who helped pave the way. From early feminist activist Lucretia Mott to radical twentieth century suffragist Alice Paul, this vibrant collection profiles both iconic figures like Sojourner Truth and those who may be less well-known, like Mary Ann Shadd Cary. Vividly illustrated with an eye-catching design, Women Win the Vote! celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment and the intrepid individuals who broke through barriers and upended tradition to fight for gender equality and the empowerment of future generations"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 January #1
    To commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment's passage on August 18, 2020, this book provides brief but absorbing chapter profiles of 19 major suffragettes who fought for women's voting rights. Women profiled, both well and lesser known, include Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Abby Kelley Foster, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Ida B. Wells, Adelina Otero-Warren, and Alice Stokes Paul. A single chapter contains paragraph profiles of 10 additional women and men (like Frederick Douglass) who figured prominently in the fight. The book admirably explains how the women didn't always see eye-to-eye on how to achieve their goals, and the harsh treatment many received when jailed. It also doesn't shy away from describing the racist views held by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Sketches, quotes, and black-and-white photos accompany each of the women profiled. Multicolored pages with sidebars offer fascinating contextual information. This accessible, well-sourced work is useful for browsing or as a supplemental resource for student research. Grades 4-7.
