Heroes of the Women's Suffrage Movement

This series introduces teen readers to the courageous and fiery pioneers of the women’s rights movement. These are women who fought against long odds and often violent opposition to gain all women—indeed all persons—the equality, dignity, and civil and human rights that today we frequently take for granted. Though there is still a long way to go down the road to true equality of the sexes, these biographies allow readers to celebrate the women who have carried us so far and provisioned us so well.
