"Nonfiction Monday: Women's Right to Vote I didn't know what Seneca Falls was until I was in college. If I had this book when younger, I think I'd have a much better appreciation for women's rights than the two paragraphs offered it in my sixth grade. For Nonfiction Monday, I'm reviewing Women's Right to Vote by Terry Collins, published by Capstone Press. Moms Inspire Learning hosts Nonfiction Monday this week. I hesitate to call Women's Right to Vote a graphic novel, as the events inside are factual. It's an illustrated history book. Women's Right to Vote is divided into chapters, each a pivotal point in women's suffrage. "Colonial times", "the 19th Amendment," etc. The first page starts off with the image of the modern teenager, cell-phone in hand, being told "to remember to vote!" It acknowledges that sometimes the decision will be hard, but the choice is the voter's alone. I like this, because too often, when younger, I heard that the right to vote was hard fought and was told my voice was important, but nobody clarified exactly why. The images inside are cartoons depicting various points in history. John Adams working on The Declaration of Independence, and Abigail Adams reminding him to "remember the ladies!" New Jersey as the one state that allowed women's rights, after the passing of the Constitution. Every page has a sidebar of a term such as abolition, suffrage, and others. As the pages continue, they reflect the changing climates in women's history. Sojurner Truth's "Ain't It a Woman?" speech is referenced as is the Declaration of Sentiments. The opposition of women's suffrage is also represented, and finally, we end at a look at women in government today, with Geraldine Ferraro, Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton. There's a lot of information packed in this slim volume of women's history. With eye-catching humorous cartoons and facts presented in a whimsical manner, Women's Right to Vote offers a nice primer on women's suffrage. If a reader wants to learn more, there's an additional reading list. My only complaint is I felt the additional reading resources could've been an entire page, but Capstone Press books are linked to Facthound, their child-safe research database, and that will yield plenty of information." - Bri Meets Books Blog
