You wouldn't want to be a suffragist is an informative book about the struggle women had to go through to get the right to vote. It tells the history for an American and British point of view. It tells about the influential women. The women final gain Independence in the U.S after World War II. The British gained their independence a little after the Americans.
This book is a good read if you are learning about women's history and American history. I recommend this book to 5th grade through 7th grade ( )

In America, women couldn't vote until 1920. This cartoon history gives an overview of the suffragists' protest movements. It wasn't an easy road - some women became violent when their requests were ignored. They set fire to mailboxes and assaulted police officers. Often women went to jail for violent or peaceful protests. Informative cartoon sidebars give many facts about the people involved in the suffrage movement. ( )
