The photo-illustrated history With Courage and Cloth tells the story of how women fought for and won the right to vote in the United States. Over the course of seven compelling, fact-filled chapters-"Parade," "Rights," "Momentum," "Protest," "Prison," "Action," and "Victory"-the story of a brave struggle unfolds, showing how women used the democratic system that excluded them in order to become full voting citizens of their nation. The book starts with basic history on the struggle for women's rights, other groups' battles for the vote, and background on the 19th-century women's suffrage movement before focusing on the ultimately successful 20th century efforts to enfranchise women. It details and illustrates the political lobbying and public protests organized by women's groups led by suffragists like Alice Paul and the backlash against these efforts, including intimidation, imprisonment, hunger strikes, and forced feeding of prisoners. The book explains how support for women's suffrage grew, leading to the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1919, and the battle to get it ratified by three-fourths of the nation's 48 states. An afterword includes a discussion of the evolution of voting rights and women's rights since 1920, including the efforts to pass an equal rights amendment. This political struggle for equal rights under the law makes for an exciting story that demonstrates democracy in action and how people have worked to improve the system. The story of how half the U.S. population earned voting rights is an important chapter in American history, and it is told here in a comprehensive and straightforward way that has not been done before for children. The great suffrage leaders don't tend to be household names, but their deeds have impact in every home and in every community on Election Day and in the political process throughout the year. The political influence of women can be seen in concrete ways even today: For example, if women hadn't won the vote, Bob Dole would have been elected President of the United States in 1996. Carrying cloth banners and with determined spirits, American women marched, picketed, and paraded tirelessly until they were heard and their rights were inscribed into the Constitution of the United States. Author Ann Bausum illustrates her gripping text with more than 50 period photographs and illustrations combed from archives at the Library of Congress, the National Women's Party, and more. These photographic treasures, some never before published, bring the suffragists and their crusade to life.… (mais)

"With Courage and Cloth: Winning the Fight for Woman's Right to Vote" tells an amazing story that most students will not get to read unless they read this book. Bausum tells an amazing story about the troubles that women went through to gain the right to vote. The story is told in first person point of view, she was inspired after a meeting with Alice Paul at age thirteen. Throughout the book, the readers see what women went through to gain their right to even be heard. Some women went to jail, when they were in jail they went on hunger strikes. When the women would go on hunger strikes, the men would force feed them. That is only one thing they went through. These brave women risked a lot just to give other women the right to vote. Initially they gained this right. The illustrations in this book did an excellent job in telling this story.

I think this would be a great book in a Social Studies Classroom. One issue it can touch on is the Woman's Right Movement. This Movement is very important to women. Obviously this story is not being told and I think it should be. Students can know more about women went through than normal students find out. The second issue teachers can pull out of this book is the women that most students have never heard of. These women deserve to be talked about. They did so much for this movement and they deserve the attention of young students. Teachers can also talk about the Amendment that came out of this movement.

I very much enjoyed reading this book. I also enjoyed looking at the pictures. However I was very shocked that the President at the time let these men get away with torturing these women the way they did. When I say that I mean force feeding them and putting them in jail so many times for just protesting. This is just amazing to me. I am also shocked that so many women went through all this. ( )

"With Courage and Cloth: Winning the Fight for a Woman's Right to Vote" is an incredible story that is left out of most text books. The story is told in first person point of view from the author's perspective. Ann Bausum was inspired about the hidden movement to fight for women's right to vote after a meeting with Alice Paul at age thirteen. "With Courage and Cloth" is significant to the title in many ways. Bausum discusses the many purposes for the banners, pennants, signs, and sashes. The pictures help aid in the understanding of Bausum's vivid and descriptive text.

This is a great text to incorporate into a social studies classroom. This text is a great aid to a history text book. A great study for students would be to compare what is written in the text book to what is written in "With Courage and Cloth." Students could then engage in discussion about what was left out of the textbook and why. An additional implementation to the classroom would be to assign students to make their own banner for a right they feel is important to them. Each banner should be tri-colored and have items sewn on to them to represent the banners the women of the suffrage movement used.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I feel that his is a part of American history that is not highlighted as it should be. These women fought for something they believed in and changed the world. It was by no means an easy task, but they were ready to face any complications or difficulties that came their way. The women highlighted in this text are incredibly encouraging and motivating. I would recommend this text to students in seventh or eighth grade. I also feel it is appropriate for both boys and girls to read. Overall, I believe this text added a tremendous amount to my knowledge about the suffrage movement and was incredibly beneficial. ( )

I just watched Iron Jawed Angels, so I'm heavy into the suffrage movement...

I can't believe how little I knew about the suffrage movement. These women were real heroes. ( )
