Gr 3-5-This straightforward biography outlines the women's rights activist's life from childhood and schooling to speechmaker and author. Weidt clearly explains Anthony's involvement with the Daughters of Temperance and how her interests helped her realize that women's suffrage was the solution to creating legitimate equal status for women. The book reads like a story and includes no documentation. Still, youngsters will gain an understanding of the history of the period and of the social position of women. Black-and-white sketches break up the somewhat dry text.-Rita Soltan, Oakland University, Rochester, MI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
