A Vote for Susanna: The First Woman Mayor

In 1887, the state of Kansas gave women the right to vote in municipal elections. But some men in the city of Argonia, Kansas didn’t think women should have a say in choosing their next mayor, so they put a woman on the ballot ― as a joke. That woman was Susanna Salter, and soon the men would find the joke was on them! When she found out, she said she would serve if the people elected her. Several supporters of another candidate approached her and offered to campaign on her behalf... and Susanna won by a landslide!

Narrated by a grandmother who remembered what happened on that election day, this book from the She Made History series tells the true story of the first woman elected as mayor in the United States. Kids will learn the obstacles that women faced just to vote, let alone to run for office, and see that from the very beginning, there were determined women like Susanna who stood up for their rights to vote — and accomplished so much more.
