There was a time that girls and women in the U.S. could not wear pants, play sports on a team, ride a bicycle or go to college. That all began to change in 1848 after the first convention for women's rights. In question-and-answer format, this book tells the story of how women worked for equal rights, culminating in the 19th amendment to the Constitution, giving women the right to vote. Readers find out what life was like for girls in those days and meet pioneering figures in the movement, including Lucy Stone, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth and Alice Paul.
