Summary: Though the Declaration of Independence stated that “all men are created equal," married women and girls in the early days of the United States had few rights. For better or worse, their lives were controlled by their husbands and fathers. Married women could not own property, and few girls were educated beyond reading and simple math. Women could not work as doctors, lawyers, or in the ministry. Not one woman could vote, but that would change with the tireless efforts of Lucretia Mott, Lucy Stone, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, Jeannette Rankin, Alice Paul, and thousands of women across the nation.             Rightfully Ours tells of the century-long struggle for woman suffrage in the United States, a movement that began alongside the abolitionist cause and continued through the ratification of the 19th amendment. In addition to its lively narrative, this history includes a time line, online resources, and hands-on activities that will give readers a sense of everyday lives of the suffragists. Children will create a banner for suffrage, host a Victorian tea, feel what it was like to wear a corset, and more. And through it all, readers will gain a richer appreciation for women who secured the right to fully participate in American democracy—and why they must never take that right for granted.   Kerrie Logan Hollihan is the author of Isaac Newton and Physics for Kids, Theodore Roosevelt for Kids, and Elizabeth I, The People's Queen.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 5 Up-A fact-filled account of the struggle for women's suffrage. The first three chapters focus on notable activists Lucy Stone, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony. Hollihan recounts how this battle was inexorably tied to the antislavery movement and the role played by women of color in both movements, including Harriett Tubman, Sojourner Truth, and Ida Wells-Barnett. Women's organizations divided over the 15th amendment that gave African American men the right to vote. The years of the Gilded Age and the early 20th century found new educational opportunities for women and opportunities to write and to speak and spread the message. Carrie Chapman Catt, Alice Paul, and Lucy Burns used new tactics including civil disobedience to draw attention to their cause. Decades of diligent work saw fruition in the passage of the 19th amendment, using the exact words written by Susan B. Anthony in 1878. Hollihan concludes this informative and edifying volume with the statement that "Equal rights for women are not yet the law of the land in the United States." Activities, which make the suffragist years come alive, are educational and fun and related to chapter materials. Included are detailed instructions for making soap and an oil lamp, making and wearing a corset, china painting, and designing suffragist postcards and signs. Captioned black-and-white photographs and reproductions and sidebars enhance each chapter. An excellent, readable introduction to an important topic.-Patricia Ann Owens, Illinois Eastern Community Colleges (c) Copyright 2012.
