Description

Author Teri Kanefield examines the life of America, famous suffragette, Susan B. Anthony. Anthony was born into a world in which men ruled women: A man could beat his wife, take her earnings, have her committed into an asylum based on his word, and take her children away from her. While the young nation was ablaze with the radical notion that people could govern themselves, , were understood to be white and male. Women were expected to stay out of public life and debates. As Anthony saw the situation, , subsistence is in the hands of men, and most arbitrarily and unjustly does he exercise his consequent power. She began her public career as a radical abolitionist, and after the Civil War, she became an international figurehead of the women, suffrage movement.

Professional reviews

"Narrating this children's audiobook, Joyce Bean delivers a self-assured performance befitting its subject--one of the most iconic women in American history, suffragette Susan. B. Anthony. With the clarity and confidence of the woman herself, Bean describes Anthony's unconventional life and tireless activism. Bean seamlessly moves from larger points about gender and race in America's Civil War era to Anthony's own words and to pithy quotes from her supporters and opponents. Though audio listeners miss out on Kanefield's extensive back matter--timelines, selected Anthony writings, and notes--the production includes a thoughtful afterword about linking the past to today's struggles. A perfectly selected narrator gives voice to the steely strength and resilience of a woman who fought for equality in a time ruled by men. E.A.N. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
