Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Susan B. Anthony's first fight was not for women's rights. Instead, it was in the temperance movement. Women did not like to get up to the podium and speak. However, Susan, raised as a Quaker, often spoke in her meetings. She was used to speaking her opinion in front of others. In the temperance movement, Susan climbed up to the podium and spoke. Susan fought most of her life for the women's right to vote. She did not live to see the vote take place. People questioned Susan for not being married. However, she said that she would not object to marriage if it were not that women throw away every plan and purpose of their lives to conform to the plans and purposes of men's lives. The book includes chapters on Susan's friendship with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, on fighting for the movement, and on setbacks. Pictures, portraits, and political cartoons make this book a winner. Students studying heroes or American history will find this an invaluable resource. 2004, Scholastic Library Publishing, Ages 10 to 14.
