Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
An introductory section, Setting the Scene, explains how elections are decided. It explores why the votes of women are so important. The four chapters cover the struggle for women’s voting rights in the United States, and why voting equality is so vital. Women’s right to vote was known as the suffrage movement. A Map of the Events denotes the status of woman’s suffrage laws in each respective state before the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1919. This amendment guaranteed that voting rights cannot be withheld based on gender. Black and white photographs and other illustrations supplement the text. Sidebars throughout the text add relevant data. A Timeline notes the status of suffrage from 1700 to 1920. A section titled, Resources, suggests books and a Scholastic Web site for more information on women’s right to vote. The Glossary defines relevant terms. An Index gives easy navigation through the text. This book is part of the “Cornerstones of Freedom, Third Series” (Spring 2014 Set) which also includes: Bill Clinton, Supreme Court, and Gun Control. This Series brings history to life by capturing the defining moments in history, and each title would be an excellent asset for all school libraries. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith; Ages 9 to 11.
