Publisher Comments:

A timely true tale for the 2008 presidential election

 

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 undeterred—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.

 

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 Belvas time, there is still a lot to fight for, and Belva shows the way. The book also includes a glossary and a timeline of womens suffrage events.

F&P level: Q

Synopsis:

Taking young readers back to the 1884 presidential election, the author introduces them to Belva Lockwood, the first woman to officially run for president and appear on the national ballot long before women were give them right to vote. Full color.
