Read full description of the books Marching with Aunt Susan: Susan B. Anthony and the Fight for Women's Suffrage:Marching with Aunt Susan: Susan B. Anthony and the Fight for Women's Suffrage by Claire Rudolf Murphy and illustrated by Stacey Schuett would make a great addition to women's suffrage curriculum. In this story, Bessie is frustrated by the limitations placed upon her as a female. Early in the story, she attends a tea where Miss Susan B. Anthony, known as Aunt Susan to everyone in attendance, gives a speech and inspires Bessie. She shares what she's learned with her friend Rita and the two of them join the women's suffrage movement, urging male voters to support Referendum #6 in the upcoming election in California--the first time women's suffrage was on a ballot.
This book was published in 2011, 100 years after women's suffrage was granted in California. The book demonstrates how this fight for equal rights began--and began with everyday people. It is both a beautiful and inspirational book, especially to young girls, as they will see that we all can do anything we set our minds to. What I enjoyed most about this book were the five pages after the story that include information about the real Bessie Keith Pond, the California, Suffrage Campaign, Susan B. Anthony, and a timeline of suffrage history. There is even a page of "further resources" that includes 9 links to valuable websites. This piece would make a great addition to an elementary classroom and provides wonderful non-fiction links helpful for the Common Core.
