I. had. no. idea. I was visiting WA DC, and while touring museums I heard a little bit about how women got the vote and thought, "I know nothing about this". I went home and started looking for information on the Suffragette story. My local Barnes and Noble had NOTHING, my local library had ONE junior book on Susan B Anthony, but that was it!! Finally after more looking, researching and reading, I found this book. This book was amazing. Her story is shocking, she tells it in a no nonsense, easy to read way. I underlined and underlined my way through this incredible story. How could I not have known this? I bought my daughter this book, I bought myself this book, I had my book group read it... yes, it's that good! And yes, it's that important! P.S. It's free on Amazon:)
(byw this is NOT the movie Suffragette, yes, same topic, but not Emmeline's Story)
This was a surprising find from our city Library. I loved it! One of those fun stories that just pulls you through. Easy to read, full of adventure, with twists and little bit of love. Remember to grab a blanket as you enjoy this frosty story.
