    1. I received this ARC from a local book-seller. So, I actually found this book fascinating and well-researched. However, as someone who teaches sixth grade and us a deep understanding of their reading and processing abilities as well as background knowledge, the intended audience for this book should be high school (at the youngest).The vocabulary and historical conceptions are definitely above the "10 years" labeled on the backcover.Aside from that, I loved the mini-biographies implanted within t [...]

    2. In today’s political arena, a woman’s voice is heard just as loud as a man’s voice, but we have had this right for less than one hundred years. The nineteenth amendment that gave women the right to vote barely passed, yet it did. This historic event was not quick and was spearheaded by many women over many decades. Roses and Radicals tells the story of these women. Some are well-known suffragettes and others are lesser known, but not less important. This non-fiction book will bring readers [...]

    3. The amount I didn't know about the fight for women's voting rights and the American suffrage movement astonishes me. This overview covers the 70+ years of the movement, starting with Elizabeth Cady Stanton's attending of the World Anti-Slavery Congress in 1840. It highlights the key players in the movement, and pulls no punches when it comes to their own biases and racism. It details the torture and abuses that many of the women marching and picketing faced, including hunger strikes and forced f [...]

    4. An excellent young adult look at the women's suffrage movement in the US. I especially appreciate that Zimet repeatedly grapples with the racism in the movement and its roots in abolitionism. Her attention to the different tactics used to further the cause also make this a great pick for budding activists of any stripe. Cassandra Campbell is incredible, of course, and her performance infuses so much tension and emotion into the narrative that I cried when Tennessee ratified the 19th Amendment, g [...]

    5. Passing this one straight on to TO. Everyone should know this history and what these women had to do to get equal representation.
