Women’s heroes are everyone’s heroes! In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote, we read books that are by, for, and about powerful women of all ages. A pre-teen who helped discover the world’s first dinosaur bone, a young women in the early 20th century who braved the illness and death of the radium factories and fought a groundbreaking battle for workers’ rights, or teens—one black, one white—who rely on each other to survive a night of violent race riots in their city—these are the stories of remarkable women of history and resourceful everyday girls.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, and we’re celebrating over at Book Riot! Join us for a day dedicated to exploring voting rights in everything from YA novels to poetry, a deep dive into the history of pockets, international suffrage efforts, and more.
