5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. Inspiring. Refreshing.
Reviewed in the United States on 14 September 2020
The first chapter is about WOMEN IN AMERICA WHO COULD VOTE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS before it ever became an issue in the United States. These women were members of the "Haudenosaunee, a confederacy of six Native American nations" (who lived across the area of NY state). The "Haudenosaunee society was matrilineal"--women owned property and "made decisions about the land and farmed it" (p. 7). They "held veto power over decisions about war and peace." (Can you imagine!!!!!;) The clan mothers nominated each clan's chief and had the "power to remove him, too" (p. 8). AND some of the women at the famous 1848 Seneca Falls convention knew about the Haudenosaunee model of government including Lucretia Mott who spent a few weeks with the Haudenosaunee about a month before the convention. This model had to have influenced their thinking, the rights they proposed for women. (The sad thing is that when the Native American nations agreed to write constitutions similar to the United States, the women in those groups LOST many of the rights they'd had.)

This first chapter frames the rest of the book which really focuses in on introducing the reader to suffragettes from all walks of life who fought for this cause (in addition to many other causes) and who many of us have never read about. The authors are straightforward about how these women had to fight racism within the movement along the way. Readers meet women of many different races and cultures as well as members of the LGBTQ community and women who just felt more comfortable in "men's clothes." I just felt like my prior knowledge on this topic expanded in so many beautiful ways.

The quality of the writing and the design and layout will draw our middle grade and middle school students in as readers--even high school students. I've been reading several books for middle grade students on this topic and this is at the top of the list for digging deeper and helping us answer the question "What don't we know about suffrage?" (a questions the authors posed for their own inquiry into this topic). At the end of the book, there's additional information about 46 other suffragettes.

I'd BOOK TALK IN GRADES 4-8 (AND EVEN 9TH), READ ALOUD EXCERPTS and then leave to be grabbed up by a student for independent reading or shared for small group discussions.
