Jeanne Gehret

Author Jeanne Gehretabout this book: What inspired Susan B. Anthony to agitate for reform for 50 years in the U.S. without money or political office? Where did she turn when she got lonely and discouraged? And what happened to her friendship with Frederick Douglass?

This easy-reading biography gives a quick overview of the major facts about America's iconic suffragist, including her illegal vote, her heroic campaign for antislavery that resulted in three constitutional amendments, and her comical but disastrous efforts at fashion reform.

The author, who portrays Miss A in costume, is an intrepid researcher, and she has been digging for info ever since the 1994 first edition of this book, which School Library Journal called "a readable, lively biography." Because she has traveled widely to places Anthony frequented, she gives eyewitness details of Anthony's Madison Street home and birthplace, and updated it to include recent vigils at her gravesite. For grades 6-8 and based on authoritative resources, includes timeline, glossary, and index for easy access. Archival photos and illustrations.
