This accessible collection of 10 compelling mini-bios of women who fought for women's voting rights brims with fascinating history and inspiration. It took more than 70 years of struggle to succeed, as Bold & Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote shows. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's text is lively, clear, and concise, and Maria Kalman's evocative portraits are sure to draw young readers in.

Gillibrand makes clear that the struggle continues, and invites readers to join in, saying on the last page: "Now it's your turn. You are the suffragists of our time. ... Stand up, speak out, and fight for what you believe in. Be bold and be brave. The future is yours to make."
