They Led the Way is about fourteen women; Johanna Johnston writes about Anne Hutchinson, Anne Bradstreet, Lady Deborah Moody, Phyllis Wheatley, Abigail Adams, Emma Willard, Ernestine Rose, Elizabeth Blackwell, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Clara Barton, Victoria Woodhull, Nellie Bly, and Carrie Chapman Catt. Each has a chapter telling about their life and what has made them famous.

This book is really great for a short version of information that you want to know. Each person is brought to life with everyday talk and an insight to what made these women do what they did to help change America.

I would use this book as a resource for my class. Students may use it to research about a certain woman, or in general how these women changed America; whether it was helping abolish slavery or becoming a nurse, each woman has made a contribution to American history. Students may also make a Vin diagram comparing women from the past to women of the present.

They Led the Way is about 14 American women. Johanna Johnston writes about Anne Hutchinson, Anne Bradstreet, Lady Deborah Moody, Phillis Wheatley, Abigail Adams, Emma Willard, Ernestine Rose, Elizabeth Blackwell, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Clara Barton, Victoria Woodhull, Nellie Bly, and Carrie Chapman Catt. This book discusses what each of these women overcame during their lifetimes.

I found this book to be not only insightful of the lives of these women but also as encouragement for struggles that some women face in today's society.

This book is great to use when studying women in history, studying equal rights for women, and can also be used when discussing any one of the women listed above. ( )
