Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The latest entry in the Profiles series singles out six women who made history: suffragettes Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton; women's rights advocate Jane Addams; Ida B. Wells, who worked against discrimination and lynching; Alice Paul, who fought to pass the Nineteenth Amendment, allowing women to vote; and Rosa Parks, a black woman who spurred the movement for equal rights and opportunity. Each profile emphasizes the woman's contributions to the cause of women's rights, in particular how the deep passion each one felt added to their success. The writing is matter-of-fact, with the design shouldering a lot of the load to distinguish each woman. Photos and reproductions of printed items, mostly black-and-white, lend context. Very useful for reports, the collective perspective establishes a through line of significance: with courage, perseverance, and determination, these women changed their lives as well as the lives of those who came after them.--Cummins, Julie Copyright 2010 Booklist"
