Women and Adversity, Saluting 23 Faithful Suffragists, is the third in my Women and Adversity series. They feature lesser-known suffragists, women who fought for equal rights, and the right of women to vote. As in Honoring 23 Black Women and Recognizing 23 Notable Mothers, these brief sketches are not biographies. The books can be study guides and references for students, prompts teachers use to help motivate students, and fascinating reading for book lovers.
