This was a very informative book including short biographies of Elizabeth Cady stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Lucy Stone, Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Alice Paul. The book starts with the biography of the first outspoken suffragist, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and continues on to 1920 when the 19th Amendment was added to the constitution.I learned a lot from this book. Some of the women I knew about, but some of the names I had unfortunately not heard. This is something all women and girls should at least be aware of.I would have students pick one of the women to do further research over.
