Overview

Born in 1820. Susan B. Anthony was brought up in a rural Quaker community, where she learned the value of education and the belief that all people should be treated with respect and dignity. As a young woman. Anthony decided to work toward improving American society. Initially, she joined the fight against alcoholic beverages, but soon grew disillusioned with the temperance movement because, although women were the heart, soul, and spine of the organization, they were forbidden from speaking at meetings and often went unrecognized for their contributions. Anthony's experience with the temperance movement, however, led to her life's work. Soon she had joined with Lucy Stone, Lucretia Mott, and, most importantly, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, to spearhead the fight for women's rights. Focusing most of her efforts on winning women the right to vote. Anthony worked tirelessly to remove the stigma of second-class citizenship from the nation's women. Today, Susan B. Anthony is recognized as one of the most important leaders of the women's equality movement. Young readers interested in women's history, or in discovering how the human rights promised in the Declaration of Independence were gradually extended to all citizens, will want to read Failure is Impossible: The Story of Susan B. Anthony.

I am currently a student, and this book has helped me tremendously throughout our studies of US History. I found this book helped me in many projects and reports, because it covered so much information about Susan B. Anthony, yet it was easy to read, unlike other biographies I have read.
