School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 5-9-Beginning with a brief introduction to the male-dominated society and voting climate during the mid-1800s, Monroe next provides family history and background for her subject's interest in voting rights for women, abolitionism, and temperance. Succeeding chapters cover the history of suffrage, the events leading up to Anthony's court trial, the trial itself, and her continued fight for women's rights up to the time of her death at age 86. Chapters detail her courage and commitment as well as her powerful partnership with Elizabeth Cady Stanton in gaining equality for women. Black-and-white reproductions and political cartoons help emphasize the impact of events prior to and following the legal battle. Simple syntax, insightful quotes, and logical organization make the information easily accessible.-Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
