Votes for Women!: American Suffragists and the Battle for the Ballot
I think that Votes for Women!: American Suffragists and the Battle for the Ballot is a good book. It tells several suffragists’ stories about their fights for women’s right to vote. There are people like Sojourner Truth and Susan B. Anthony who wanted equality for all people in terms of voting, and each story is explained in a different part of the book. This book tells how women had to fight for their rights, enduring jail time, rudeness, disrespect, and just not being taken seriously! A group of suffragists, including Alice Paul, refused to eat. That meant that they had to be force-fed in jail! I would consider this a much better version of a history textbook since I did learn a lot. However, I didn’t feel like I was sitting in class, which is good. It was educational without being boring. This was also a really good topic to write a book about. Learning about how people had to fight for women’s rights is very important. Overall, this was probably the best version of a textbook ever, and I definitely recommend it.
