Women's Suffrage: A Primary Source History of the Women's Rights Movement in America

Women's Suffrage: A Primary Source History of the Women's Rights Movement in America

by Colleen Adams, Kerri O'Donnell

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Chronicling the record of voting rights for women in the United States, this research volume becomes an excellent nonfiction tool for youngsters exploring suffrage issues. This account differs from most others that investigate the topic because it never forgets that it is a history of the rights and not of the activists who worked to win the rights. There is, of course, a good bit of information on Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Sojourner Truth, but the focus is the movement. Text is backed by copies of letters and documents, both actual and recopied, an approach that will serve young readers well in later years as they prepare papers for Advanced Placement history courses and the document-based questions that will need to be addressed. Part of a series called "Primary Sources in American History," the narrative is all business and less than riveting. However, the facts are presented without prejudice and followed by a strong bibliography. 2003, The Rosen Publishing Group,
