If You Lived When Women Won Their Rights
by Anne Kamma
There was a time that girls and women in the United States could not: wear pants; play sports on a team; ride a bicycle; or go to college. That all began to change in 1848, when American women (and some men) met in Seneca Falls, NY, at the first convention for women's rights held anywhere in the world. In the familiar question-and-answer format, this installment in the acclaimed If You Lived... history series tells the exciting story of how women worked to get equal rights with men, culminating in the 19th amendment to the Constitution and giving women the right to vote. Readers find out what life was like for girls in those days and meet the pioneering figures in the movement, including Lucy Stone, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, and Alice Paul. Anne Kamma has written several books in the series including If You Lived When There Was Slavery in America and If You Lived with the Indians of the Northwest Coast, both illustrated by Pamela Johnson
