Susan B. Anthony: Her Fight for Equal Rights by Monica Kulling  

Susan B. Anthony was very concerned about fairness and equality for women and girls in America. She knew it wasn't fair to pay a woman less than a man for the same job. She knew it wasn't fair not to allow women to vote in elections. In fact, it was illegal for women to vote. But she felt so strongly, she voted in an election--and was arrested--anyway. Young readers will learn about young Susan B. Anthony and how she grew up to become a suffragette--a fighter for women's equality.  Her work made the 19th Amendment to the Constitution possible!

Congratulations Laura P., you are our Win it Wednesday winner!
