A Lady Has the Floor: Belva Lockwood Speaks Out for Women's Rights
Activist Belva Lockwood never stopped asking herself the question Are women not worth the same as men? She had big dreams and didn’t let anyone stand in her way–not her father, her law school, or even the U.S. Supreme Court. She fought for equality for women in the classroom, in the courtroom, and in politics. In her quest for fairness and parity, Lockwood ran for President of the United States, becoming the first woman on the ballot. Age range: 7-10 years. Written by Kate Hannigan. Illustrated by Alison Jay. Hardcover; 32 pages.
