Bold & Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote by Kirsten Gillibrand, illustrated by Maira Kalman
Speaking of Senators, the junior Senator from New York, Kirsten Gillibrand, is writing a book about 10 women who fought for the right to vote.
For young people who witnessed the first female presidential candidate from a major party, it’s shocking to think that less than one hundred years ago, women couldn’t vote at all.
This is a reminder of the tireless, fearless work done by women of the early 20th century, from well-known names like Susan B. Anthony to lesser-known heroes, like Jovita Idár, Inez Milholland, and Lucy Burns.
