Bold & Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote

A hundred years ago, women won the right to vote. They fought hard for decades to make their voices heard and their choices count. And they prevailed.

United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is inspired by these heroes every day. Here she looks at ten of the fearless women who paved the way toward justice and equality. From well-known historical figures like Susan B. Anthony and Sojourner Truth to less familiar ones like Jovita Idar and Mary Church Terrell, these women were bold and brave - and can teach us to be bold and brave, too.

With stunning art by Maira Kalman, this inspiring picture book shows us all how to stand up, speak out, and fight for what we believe in.
