Stories of the Struggle for the Vote Votes for Women! by Charlotte Guillain

Women used to have few rights. All the important decisions in their lives were made by men. They could not vote and give their opinion on who should run the country. By the middle of the 19th century, more and more women were starting to ask why not? These are the stories of five trailblazers who achieved amazing things in difficult circumstances: Elizabeth Cady Stanton began campaigning for women's rights when she was refused entry to a convention because she was a women. Susan B Anthony cast her vote knowing she'd be arrested. Clementina Black organized a strike at a factory that paid women low wages. Carrie Chapman Catt travelled the world promoting the need for women's suffrage. Emmeline Pankhurst led a march along Downing Street in London, petitioning the vote for women. Many of the rights women have today are down to their actions. They helped change society's image of women forever.
