Madam President: The Extraordinary, True (and Evolving) Story of Women in Politics
Catherine Thimmesh (au); Douglas B. Jones (il)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
When Abigail Adams asked her husband to “Remember the Ladies,” women could not vote or own property in America. Seventy years later, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote, “To vote is the most sacred act of citizenship,” the U.S. gov’t. still did not treat women as equals, having yet to grant them the right to vote. But 64 years after that, Geraldine Ferraro declared, “We can do anything,” and became the first Amer. woman to run for V.P. on a major party ticket. This book illuminates the bravery and tenacity of these women. It not only shows how far women have come, but also reveals the many unsung roles women have played in political history. These capable ladies have paved the way for our young leaders of tomorrow. Full-color illustrations.
