I am a high school sophomore and i chose this book for my research project. i enjoyed reading A Friendship that changed the world by Penny coleman. She introduced the two characters vey well and had a lot of information that helped me answer the questions I had. The book was very easy to read and it was helpful when she separated the women in different chapters. I liked how Penny first talked about Susan's life then in the second part she changed to Elizabeth and Susan's life and how they slowly changed the world. With all the great detail it was easy to comprehend how they fought for women lives. It also helped on how the author put the sources on the back of the page to make it easier for me to find stuff. i enjoyed every bit of the book and definitely recommend it to anybody interested in women suffrage. This book changed my point of view and helped me see how hard it was for women to live during this time. It was an inspiring book and they both are definitely huge impacts on this world even to this day.
I am a high school sophomore, who had to do a research project on Susan B. Anthony. I enjoyed reading A Friendship That Changed the World by Penny Colman very much. It was easy to read and in the first part of the book the author dedicated separate chapters to both women about the beginning of their lives. After the first part, the rest of the book describes the life of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton on their journey to fight for women's rights. Finally, at the end of the book the author includes a group of resources that can help the reader to understand more about the two most famous women in history. In the book, Susan's letter to Elizabeth inspires me because fifty years ago women had no rights and throughout those fifty years these two women fought for millions of women past and present. Without their voice our society would not be where it is today. I recommend this book highly too readers who want to know about the lives of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and what gave them the inspiration to fight for women's rights.
