What is this book about?

The sto­ry of Girl Pow­er! Learn about the remark­able women who changed US history.

From Susan B. Antho­ny and Eliz­a­beth Cady Stan­ton to Glo­ria Steinem and Hillary Clin­ton, women through­out US his­to­ry have fought for equal­i­ty. In the nine­teenth and ear­ly twen­ti­eth cen­turies, women were demand­ing the right to vote. Dur­ing the 1960s, equal rights and oppor­tu­ni­ties for women–both at home and in the workplace–were pushed even fur­ther. And in the more recent past, Wom­en’s March­es have tak­en place across the world. Cel­e­brate how far women have come with this inspir­ing read!
