Publisher Comments:

A timely true tale for the 2008 presidential election

and#160;

In 1884, when men were the only people allowed to vote in national elections, Belva Lockwood took a bold but legal step: She ran for president! Women did not have the same rights as men, but Belva went on undeterredand#8212;and she got votes! Her run for office was based on experience and merit: Unlike many women of the time, she went to college, then to law school, and even argued cases before the Supreme Court.

and#160;

Though her campaign was difficult, Belva never wavered in her commitment to equality, earning the respect of many fellow citizens. A little-known but richly deserving American historical figure, Belva is an inspiration for modern-day readers. Despite all the changes in society since Belvaand#8217;s time, there is still a lot to fight for, and Belva shows the way. The book also includes a glossary and a timeline of womenand#8217;s suffrage events.
