Suffragette: The Battle for Equality

Written and Illustrated by David Roberts

Cleverly illustrated and concisely written, this nonfiction book about the fight for the female vote is a timely offering as we celebrate the U.S. constitutional amendment that was ratified 100 years ago and gave women the right to vote. This book shares the history of the suffrage movement not just in the United States, but also abroad. A brief history of voting rights sets the stage for the movement that was joined by men and women of all classes and creeds. Fun historical inclusions like a page showing buttons, badges and patches and mini-bios of prominent women in the movement, help the book move quickly. I think this book will be well received by students who find themselves assigned to learn more about women and the vote.
