Description

A biography of leading social reformer Susan B. Anthony, told in graphic novel format.

Susan B. Anthony: Champion for Voting Rights! is a biography of the woman who was at the forefront of the women’s suffrage movement in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Along with other social reformers such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Frederick Douglass, Anthony not only paved the way for women seeking the right to vote but also spoke out against the institution of slavery, at great personal risk. Full-color illustrations and historically accurate text make this biography an entertaining, educational, and inspiring read for those who enjoy history and graphic novels.
