Let's Celebrate Women's Equality Day
From the Series Holidays & Heroes
Women in the United States fought for over a hundred years to win the right to vote. From Susan B. Anthony to Sojourner Truth, many powerful American heroes lent their voices to this movement. Every year on August 26 we celebrate the hard-won victories of the past and work toward a more equal future.
Holidays & Heroes brings to life the people whose holidays we celebrate throughout the year. Enriched with colorful historical images, books in this series will engage children in the stories behind our holidays and the people they honor.
