American women were first allowed to vote in 1920. The quest to secure that right began in 1848, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton and others held the Seneca Falls Convention in Seneca Falls, New York. Over the decades that followed, Stanton tirelessly wrote, petitioned, and lectured on behalf of securing not just the ballot, but also equality for women in the workplace, in schools, and within America's legal system.

New biography series using extensive primary resources as it brings American history to life. Through a chronological narrative, enriched with diary entries, letters, and other primary documents, readers will learn about the various stages of our nation's development and history from the perspective of both individuals and society.
