Stories of Women's Suffrage: Votes for Women!

Women used to have few rights. All the important decisions in their lives were made by men. They could not vote and give their opinion on who should run the country. By the middle of the 19th century, more and more women were starting to ask why not? These are the stories of five trailblazers who achieved amazing things in difficult circumstances: Elizabeth Cady Stanton began campaigning for women’s rights when she was refused entry to a convention because she was a woman. Susan B. Anthony cast her vote knowing she’d be arrested. Clementina Black organized a strike at a factory that paid women low wages. Carrie Chapman Catt traveled the world promoting the need for women’s suffrage. Emmeline Pankhurst led a march along Downing Street in London, petitioning the vote for women. Many of the rights women have today are thanks to their actions. They helped change society's image of women forever.

Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

"The series profiles American and British women — such as Emmaline Pankhurst (Suffrage) and Betty Friedan (1960s) — who challenged their era’s social norms. Contextualized with period quotations, the readable volumes cover the suffrage movement, the fight for civil liberties, sexism in the workplace, and socioeconomic issues." - Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book
