Booklist - 06/01/2020 *Starred Review* This informative book takes a refreshingly inclusive approach to the history of women’s voting rights in the United States. In addition to recognizing the contributions of well-known figures such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, it widens the spotlight, profiling leaders who have represented minorities and describing the particular challenges they have faced as they worked to promote women’s suffrage. Representing generations of voting-rights activists within the American Indian, Black, Chinese American, Latina, and LGBTQ+ communities, the featured leaders include Mary Church Terrell, Angelina Weld Grimké, Mary Burrill, Mabel Ping-Hua Lee, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Jovita Idár, Susette La Flesche Tibbles, and Zitkála-Šá. The text, written with clarity and verve, also acknowledges racist attitudes within the mainstream women’s suffrage organizations of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, while showing how the voting-rights movement was intertwined with other important causes, such as abolition, temperance, and the struggle of Native Americans to protect their lands and traditions. The book has a fresh, inviting look. Illustrations include vibrant, distinctive, full-page digital portraits as well as period photos and documents brightened with colorful elements. An appended section features 46 “Brave and Revolutionary Women You Should Know” and displays their images on “trading cards” along with fast facts. A valuable resource for library collections.Women in Focus: The 19th in 2020 - Copyright 2020 Booklist.

School Library Journal - 07/01/2020 Gr 4–8—The New York Times staff collaborated to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and provide a feminist look at prominent leaders of the women's suffrage movement. While readers may recognize names like Susan B. Anthony, this critical text successfully reframes the movement, centering queer women, women of color, and Native women whose stories have been excluded. Chapters about Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Mabel Ping-Hua Lee, and other trailblazers expose racism within the movement and examine the relationship between women's suffrage and civil rights. Stunning, full-page portraits mark each chapter, though some include confusing elements such as a bird perched on the shoulder of Dakota Sioux activist Zitkála-Šá without the context that her name translates to "red bird." VERDICT This collection of remarkable women will make for a thorough primary source for middle grade research projects. The book's social justice lens is an obvious strength. Recommended for school and public libraries, especially where whitewashed histories detailing the suffrage movement need updating.—Allison Staley, Lake Oswego P.L., OR - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
