Summary

Summary

Born a Quaker, Susan B. Anthony grew up being taught that women were equal to men. During her lifetime, she was a teacher, a newspaperwoman, and an activist. She worked to further many causes such as the temperance, the abolitionist, and women's rights movements. Although she didn't live to see her dream of women's suffrage come true, her tireless dedication to the cause was crucial to its success.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-This straightforward biography outlines the women's rights activist's life from childhood and schooling to speechmaker and author. Weidt clearly explains Anthony's involvement with the Daughters of Temperance and how her interests helped her realize that women's suffrage was the solution to creating legitimate equal status for women. The book reads like a story and includes no documentation. Still, youngsters will gain an understanding of the history of the period and of the social position of women. Black-and-white sketches break up the somewhat dry text.-Rita Soltan, Oakland University, Rochester, MI (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
