In 1884, men were the only people allowed to vote in national elections. Convinced of the unfairness of this law, Belva Lockwood took a bold but legal step: She ran for president. And unlike any other woman before her, she received votes! Belva fought her whole life for equal treatment, breaking barriers in the process. She went to college and then to law school, she argued cases before the Supreme Court -- she even rode around Wash., D.C., on a newfangled tricycle! Though her presidential campaign faced many challenges, Belva never wavered in her commitment to equality, earning the respect -- and votes -- of many fellow citizens. Belva is an inspiration for modern-day readers. Full-color illustrations. Reinforced binding.
