Elizabeth Started All the Trouble

We rated this book:


Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her friends worked very hard to end slavery, but people wouldn’t listen to them because they were women, and they also were frustrated that they weren’t allowed to vote. They wrote a declaration about how women should be able to vote and they worked and worked for years to get people to change the law. Lots of women helped by giving speeches, doing jobs that men had usually done, and even marching in protest marches. Finally some states did start giving women the right to vote, and then finally all women in the United States were allowed to vote.

This is an important book because it shows how lots of women worked really hard to be able to vote. The pictures help to tell the story and you can see what the women looked like and what they had to go through, even though all the pictures are drawings. The book is easy to read but interesting and has good information; it is a good introduction to this part of history, and it would be especially useful for children who are in middle school or older elementary school to learn about what it took to get the right to vote.
