Item description for You Want Women to Vote, Lizzie Stanton? by Jean Fritz...

A biography of one of the first leaders of the women's rights movement, whose work led to the adoption of the nineteenth amendment--women's right to vote

Publishers Description
Who says women shouldn't speak in public? And why can't they vote? These are questions Elizabeth Cady Stanton grew up asking herself. Her father believed that girls didn't count as much as boys, and her own husband once got so embarrassed when she spoke at a convention that he left town. Luckily Lizzie wasn't one to let society stop her from fighting for equality for everyone. And though she didn't live long enough to see women get to vote, our entire country benefited from her fight for women's rights. "Fritz?imparts not just a sense of Stanton's accomplishments but a picture of the greater society Stanton strove to change?.Highly entertaining and enlightening." -- "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "This objective depiction of AStanton's? life and times?makes readers feel invested in her struggle." -- "School Library Journal" (starred review) "An accessible, fascinating portrait." -- "The Horn Book "

Reviews - What do customers think about You Want Women to Vote, Lizzie Stanton??

An amazing book about how women get equal rights with men  Sep 27, 2005
Elizabeth Cady would always speak her mind if she thought something was wrong. She was a bit of a tomboy, and thought she would be able to do the things that boys did as a child. Then, as she got older, she relized that women's right's were not equal to men's rights. When she was old enough, she got married to Henry Stanton and Became Elizabeth Cady Stanton. She decided that since she had a little more freedom, she would go around, discussing the about this problem. She started doing protest speeches about it, too. Henry Stanton thought she took it way too far and decided to move out. Being that she had three boys, she was a single mom, struggling to spread her word about this and still trying to take care of them.

This book is very interesting and shows how a women could do this. I believe that if females keep strong, there will soon be a women president. Read on.............

A Must-Read for 11-12 year old American Girls  Sep 1, 2003
Jean Fritz does a remarkable job engaging the reader in the compelling tale of one woman's life... a woman who is often overshadowed in the popular culture.

Today's young girls will benefit in learning how much women of the past were much like they were AND had much fewer benefits AND how much they worked, created and moved their way towards their desired end result which we all benefit from today.

Fritz' tone is amusing and highly readible while covering the important facts at hand as well.

I am looking forward to having my daughter read this book so she can get to "know" Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
