Shipped to Tattered Cover in 3 to 7 days
On a summer day in 1848, a gathering of women in Seneca Falls, New York, gave birth to a new revolution in American history -- the fight for women's rights. In the 1880s and earlier, most people believed that a woman's place was in the home. Despite the overriding opinion, some women saw that their lives were limited by this view. These women decided to bravely fight the norm. "Created Equal" is the story of this struggle -- women's struggle for the right to vote.
Understand why women sought reform, how they formed partnerships with one another, and how the movement suffered from its own inner battles. Learn about pioneering women suffragists such as Lucy Stone, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Alice Paul. "Created Equal" tells how American women fought for their beliefs and won -- winning not only their own right to vote, but greater freedoms for all Americans.
About the Author
Ann Rossi learned English as she was growing up in the United States. "My family is Swedish, so at home we spoke Swedish, and our traditions were Swedish." Growing up in two cultures sparked her interest in the world. "As a small child I loved looking at maps to see all the different countries. I enjoyed learning about the people who lived in those countries, their history, culture, and languages." Those subjects still interest Ann, who, not surprisingly, likes to travel. When she is not exploring the world, she lives in Portland, Maine, with her husband and cat. She works as an editor and writer.
