Elizabeth Cady Stanton stood up and fought for what she believed in. From an early age, she knew that women were not given rights equal to men. But rather than accept her lesser status, Elizabeth went to college and later gathered other like-minded women to challenge the right to vote.
Here is the inspiring story of an extraordinary woman who changed America forever because she wouldn't take "no" for an answer. Author Tanya Lee Stone explores the world through Stanton's eyes, taking the reader's focus away from facts and dates and encouraging them to imagine her world: one in which women had to fight for the simplest rights. From her childhood to the Declaration of Rights and Sentiments being presented at the Seneca Falls Convention, this is a fascinating journey through one suffragist's life.
"Through words and pictures that work together and an emphasis on ideas and personality rather than factoids, this well-conceived introduction is just right for a young audience." — School Library Journal
