Summary
"In an era when women worldwide had few rights and could not vote, Susan B. Anthony risked her freedom and reputation by advocating for women's suffrage in the United States. This engaging title analyzes her 1873 speech On Women's Right to Vote, and its simple, but powerful, assertion that women are "persons." Additional material encourages readers to compare this speech to works by Sojourner Truth, as well as more modern women's rights advocates"--, Provided by publisher
