About the Book

Throughout Susan B. Anthony’s life, women and men were not considered equal. Women could not own property or vote; nor could they receive good educations. But Susan envisioned a time when women would be treated fairly, so became a voice for change. Her speeches and articles about women’s suffrage made her unpopular: people threw rotten eggs at her and even threatened her life! Yet she did not give up.

In clear and simple words and jewel-like paintings, Alexandra Wallner tells the essential story of the woman whose passion for justice led to the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment, giving women the right to vote, to be named in her honor.
