This book tells the story of the struggle for a woman's right to vote through the voices of two feisty aunts—Edith from the U.S. and Mabel from the U.K.—who describe the movement to their young American niece in 1920. Using cartoon-like illustrations and timelines, the author introduces readers to the pioneers of the suffrage movement, important events of the time and the tactics used by suffragists and protesters to win equal rights.
