Book Review - Heart on Fire

About the Book 
On November 5, 1872, Susan B. Anthony made history--and broke the law--when she voted in the US presidential election, a privilege that had been reserved for men. She was arrested, tried, and found guilty: "The greatest outrage History ever witnessed," she wrote in her journal. It wasn't until 1920 that women were granted the right to vote, but the civil rights victory would not have been possible without Susan B. Anthony's leadership and passion to stand up for what was right.

My Take on the Book 
Do the young women , girls, in your life know the journey women have made over the last 100+ years which have brought them the right to vote, attend college, become doctors, etc? I think this is a book that every parent or grandparent who has a young girl in their lives needs to share with them.

Susan B. Anthony is one of those women who risked everything on November 5, 1872 when she cast her ballot for president of the United States. She broke the law and was tried and convicted. Every woman should appreciate her courage and perseverance , as well as the other women involved, who did not give up until the 19th Amendment became law and women had the right to vote on August 18, 1920.

This story shows the struggle these women had and it should help us appreciate the privilege we have to vote.
