Gr 7 Up—Stewart explores the women and movements that paved the way for the right to vote in about 22 countries. From Australia to the UK to South Africa, the stories are grippingly told in a snapshot style coupled with gorgeous illustrations. Each vignette's artwork expands on the emotional content of each tale; here, Knight's Matilde Hidalgo de Procel is a young girl, when her fire for fairness was ignited; reflections in broken glass captures the riots and lengths women in the UK went to. Stewart makes note of when women of color were left out of the initial voting rights reforms. A time line of when countries granted women the right to vote caps off the end of the stories for handy reference for how change was inspired and enacted.
VERDICT A good purchase for YA nonfiction collections.
