The Inside Guide: Movements for Equality
Reading Level: 4-5
Interest Level: 4-6
White American women won the right to vote in the 1920s, but the suffragette movement started decades earlier. Women fought for nearly 100 years to be allowed to participate in politics at the most basic level. Even after the 19th Amendment was ratified, women of color needed to carry on the fight for their own voting rights—a fact that is often overlooked by history books. Through informative sidebars and engaging fact boxes, this volume takes an intersectional look at the women's suffrage movement. A list of relevant books and websites is included to encourage further independent research.
