Children's LiteratureWe all know about Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucy Stone, pioneers in women's suffrage. However, very little is included in textbooks or curriculum materials about the period from 1913 to 1920. This is a period when Alice Paul was an influential activist, and it includes some of the most violent incidents in the suffrage struggle. This beautifully researched and written book fills in some of the gaps during this important period. The book starts with a recap of the Suffrage Movement from 1848 to 1906, and then expands on the period when women marched on Washington, went to prison and were tortured in prison. The book is a perfect supplemental research text. Every school library that includes women's history as a part of the school curriculum should carry at least one of these texts. The text adds an important voice to our knowledge about the United States Government and history. 2004, National Geographic, Ages 13 to 18.
