    *Starred Review* Bartoletti recounts the history surrounding the adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted some American women the right to vote. She focuses on the activities of Americans Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, who first became involved in the British suffragette movement in 1909, gleaning valuable insights into the politics of protest. After returning to the U.S., they worked together to lobby for a constitutional amendment and organized the first Washington, D.C., suffragist parade, held on March 3, 1913. This succinctly written and carefully sourced text offers young readers a glimpse into the struggles required to enact political change. Bartoletti recounts details of picket lines, arrests, hunger strikes, and forced feedings endured by many of the women who participated in the protests. She also acknowledges the prevalent racism of the time, which sometimes prevented African American women, including Ida B. Wells, from participating fully in these activities. Chen's richly hued digital artwork meshes seamlessly with numerous captioned documentary photos, as well as charts, maps, and sidebars. Purples, whites, yellows, and greens predominate, signifying the shades depicted in the suffragists' banners. Featuring generous back matter (including a time line, sources and notes, and further reading), this is an attractive and informative introduction that fills in key details often missing from other accounts of this story.
