You Want Women to Vote, Lizzie Stanton?

You Want Women to Vote, Lizzie Stanton?

by Jean Fritz Illustrated by Dyanne DiSalvo-Ryan

With her trademark humor and anecdotal style, the Newbery Honor Award-winner and preeminent biographer for young people turns her attention to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the lively, unconventional spokeswoman of the woman suffrage movement.

"If only you'd been a boy," said Lizzie Cady's father when she won a prize for Latin. But Lizzie didn't want to be a boy. She just wanted girls to count as much as boys did. Lizzie spoke out for suffrage, and continued to travel the country with Susan B. Anthony campaigning for equal rights, and her efforts will forever be associated with the fight for women's equality.
