TruthJust my two cents This timely book introduces oung readers to Alice Paul and her activism her ongoing support of women s suffrage and her continuing advocacy for passage of the 19th Amendment during Woodrow Wilson s two presidential terms Beautifully illustrated it provides a fascinating and compelling look at an important moment in American history The two page timeline at the end of the book reminds readers that women getting the vote was not an easy process and should not be taken lightly The 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote and *This Year Will Be The 100th Anniversary Of The Ratification *year will be the 100th anniversary of the ratification the amendment This book shows the struggles that Alice Paul and her fellow suffragists went through particularly with President Woodrow Wilson to make this happen A timely and wonderful story expertly woven for ounger readers An important story to tell but framing it as a boxing match is an odd and mismatched way to share her story A crowd lines the parade route half a million strong Angry men spill into the street They push spit and throw lit cigars at the marchers Go home where ou belong The suffrage parade dissolves into a riot Hundreds are injuredSounds familiar doesn t it It seems as if change can never happen in the US

A very cute clever telling of Alice
Paul S Suffrage Work Making The Battles suffrage work making the battle Paul and Woodrow Wilson resemble a prize fight and in this corner The text adorably reads like a prizefight announcer is calling the fight I love Sarah Green s cute colorful drawings which manage to be pretty historically accurate in terms of clothing hair etc but also visually expressive And I love the art in this book but I have two big issues1 I don t love framing political efforts in sports metaphors here as a boxing match It s done too often leading to a misconception that there must be a clear cut winner and loser with no room for nuance or analysis of external factors like winning is often predicated on specific privileges or social advantages Basically Think It The Process2 The think it oversimplifies the process2 The issue is that Alice Paul though originally included Black women activists ultimately upheld processes and norms that excluded them This book puts that fact in the end notes with just a few sentences and frames this exclusion as damaging to her reputation Um it was racist and unacceptable not just damaging to her reputation I understand that any book about women s suffrage in America is going to have to address the rampant racism in this movement but if Slavery Reborn you want to talk about what white women did do that was importantou MUST devote at least a few pages to explaining that their activism was imperfect and racist I realize this isn t fun to learn about It s uncomfortable And infuriating But many movements arewere racistclassistsexist and we owe it to kids to tell the whole uncomplicated truth this book talks about Paul leading a hunger strike and being tortured in prison we can tell the whole. The fight for women's suffrage between women's rights leader Alice Paul and President Woodrow Wilson is presented as a four round boxing match in this nonfiction picture bookWhen Woodrow Wilson was elected President he didn't know that he would be participating in one of the greatest fights.
