Booklist - 02/15/2019 Susan B. Anthony, who fought tirelessly for women to have the right to vote, is profiled in this very readable entry in the Making of America series. The biography recounts Anthony's life, from her birth in 1820 into a Quaker family in Massachusetts to her death in Rochester, New York, at age 86. Anthony repeatedly witnessed the injustices caused by women's lack of rights, and her rallying cry became, Men their rights, nothing more; women their rights, nothing less. Anthony's 50-year friendship with suffragette Elizabeth Cady Stanton is warmly detailed, as is her work with abolitionists Frederick Douglass and other female suffragettes. Knowing she might not succeed, Anthony said, For future generations must we labor. The book describes Anthony's life and work while providing historical context. Anthony was known as a charismatic speaker, and one highlight here is the quotes and excerpts taken from her writings. Photos, magazine illustrations, maps, and a list of selected writings accompany this accessible text. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
