Good Girls Don't Make History

by Elizabeth Kiehner Author, Kara Coyle Author and Micaela Dawn Illustrator

In this beautifully illustrated and inspiringly executed graphic novel, follow the history of the women's suffrage movement in the United States from its beginnings in the 19th century through to its fruition in 1920. Beginning in the present day at a polling station in California, Good Girls Don't Make History takes the reader back in time to the World Anti-Slavery Convention, where it could be argued that the movement for women's suffrage got its start. Meeting figures such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, and Susan B. Anthony along the way, the reader learns the long history of struggle that led to a woman's right to vote, and continues today in the fight for equality.
