Review

"This thoughtful portrayal of two complex women is further enhanced by comprehensive backmatter, making this an invaluable addition to the literature of suffrage.” --Kirkus Reviews

In 1960, she joined a group and rode her bicycle (plus took a few train rides) across the U.S. In 1964 she dropped out of college, worked in a frozen food factory in Sweden and hitchhiked throughout Europe, including to Turkey and Greece. Between 1965-1970, she graduated from college and graduate school, got married, and had three very close-in-age children.

Format: Hardcover
Even in their early years, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony understood that American society considered girls and women to be second-class citizens. As they each grew older, Elizabeth and Susan grew more frustrated with the fact that women could not claim ownership of property or the money they earned, they faced barriers at the colleges that men attended, they were denied the right to vote, and the primary aspiration assigned to them by social norms was to stay home to take care of their husbands and children. Elizabeth and Susan both realized that the most effective way to change women's inferior status and to reform the existing laws was to grant women the right to vote.

Elizabeth and Susan first met each other in the spring of 1851 in Seneca Falls, NY, soon after the first American women's rights convention 1848, also held in Seneca Falls. Convention participants had signed a document known as the Declaration of Rights and Sentiments, which called for a broad range of social, economic, legal, and political reforms to improve the status of women. The demand for women's suffrage proved to be the most controversial of the proposed reforms, and Elizabeth and Susan worked the rest of their lives advocating for women's right to vote.

With its thorough background research using a variety of sources, this historical narrative provides readers with a closer look at the role that Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony played in improving the lives of American women. Along the way, the book covers several important concepts in economics related to the economics of gender, discrimination, property rights, jobs, and the allocation of resources and labor within the household. Although there are numerous biographical accounts of both these women, this book is one of the few that weaves their stories together in a way that will engage with middle grade and young adult readers.

Format: Hardcover
Anyone who wants to learn about these two famous pioneers of woman's suffrage doesn't have to go any further than Ms. Colman's outstanding description of Ms. Anthony and Mrs. Stanton in her latest book. I enjoyed the way the author, in the early part of her book, paid separate attention to each of these two women, showing how different they were in some respects and alike in others. Then, after Ms. Anthony and Mrs. Stanton finally meet, the author describes how their differences meshed--how Susan B. Anthony, the forceful speaker, needed Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the creative writer, to work as a team fighting the harsh resistance that came their way. Ms. Colman's attention to detail was something that impressed me--such as how Mrs. Stanton, asleep outside of a carriage in Kansas, was awakened by pigs who used the iron steps of the carriage as scratching posts. Or, how Susan had read 44 love sonnets by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. As an author who had done considerable research on women's suffrage, I found history books on the subject tend to be rather drawn-out, too verbose, and, frankly, quite boring. Not so with Ms. Colman's book. This is a wonderful read, and I heartily recommend it.

This is a wonderful book. Women still have so far to go in the U.S. and around the world to gain more rights. But Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony certainly helped us a lot. I kept thinking, as I read Colman's book, what should women be working for today and who are our leaders of the stature of these two pioneers?

A valuable history concerning the original fight for women's rights, leading to many organizations for women and children, and the eventual fight for the right to vote. Some sentences are long. A good history about very diligent and brave women.

without a doubt these two women went against the odds of them losing the very victory they were seeking, in search for truth, justice and the American way which includes women.
