Elizabeth Cady Stanton was involved both in abolitionism and the women’s rights movement, becoming an outspoken advocate in the two realms and leading the way for many other women to take up the banner of equality. Rappaport takes readers through the evolution of suffrage, from the first women’s rights convention at Seneca Falls, NY, where Stanton shared the Declaration of Sentiments, to the many women who took a stand or dared to think outside the box. Organized chronologically, the book presents brief details about many of the events, protests, trials, and jail sentences, as well as how women eventually gained the right to vote, functioning almost as a time line. The accompanying artwork provides a look at individuals and adds context to the narrative. VERDICT A solid introduction to Stanton and the women’s rights movement.—Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
