The author begins by telling a little about the strong women in her own family who taught her to fight for what she believes in. She then goes on to tell a little about ten women who played an important role in helping women gain the right to vote. These women include Elizabeth Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Jovita Idar, Alice Paul, Inez Milthollan, Ida B. Wells, Lucy Burns, and Mary Church Terrell. This book is very educational, I learned a lot from it so it would be great to read in a classroom. It explains any words that students might not be familiar with such as, suffrage and abolitionist. The back of the book goes on to name even more women that have helped shape our nation. ( )
