A Lady Has The Floor: Belva Lockwood Speaks Out for Women's Rights

Amazon.com Rating:

Activist Belva Lockwood never stopped asking herself the question "Are women not worth the same as men?" She had big dreams and didn't let anyone stand in her way — not her father, her law school, or even the U.S. Supreme Court. She fought for equality for women in the classroom, in the courtroom, and in politics. In her quest for fairness and parity, Lockwood ran for President of the United States, becoming the first woman on the ballot.

In this riveting nonfiction picture book biography, award-winning author Kate Hannigan and celebrated artist Alison Jay illuminate the life of Lockwood, a woman who was never afraid to take the floor and speak her mind.
