Children's book looks at early feminism

At a time when a woman is running for president of the United States, it is more important than ever for kids to know about the person who first had the idea that women should be able to vote. Meet Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a woman who stood up and fought for what she believed in. In 19th-century America, women were not permited to attend college, own property, or vote. Rather than accept her status, Stanton gathered other like-minded women to challenge the right to vote. Author Tanya Lee Stone will be reading from her new picture book about Stanton, titled Elizabeth Leads the Way, at the Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne, Saturday, June 7, at 11 a.m. The book is ideal for younger children through middle schoolers who want to learn about this time in American history.
