My 10 year old and I listened to this as an audiobook together and we both really enjoyed it and we both learned a lot.

Is It Any Good?

With the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment being celebrated in 2020, this is a timely, accessible, and unflinching look at the fight to give women the vote. Roses and Radicals packs a lot of history into 168 pages, but it's filled with memorable personalities, and numerous sidebars break up what might otherwise be heavy historical going for some readers.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
