Mandy Ross is a Heinemann Raintree author.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-9-In topical spreads, Ross examines the changes in women's roles in the areas of politics, human rights, education, domestic life, work, fashion, and sports. From the suffragettes of the 1900s to the various fundamentalist regimes currently oppressing women's rights, she adopts a worldwide perspective on the topic. Rather than just covering familiar names such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott, she examines suffrage in Japan, Mexico, and Britain as well as in the U.S. Several charts offer significant data, such as the year each country granted women the right to vote and the first year women could study at universities. Numerous color photos with informative captions and concise fact boxes appear on each spread. While this is a vast amount of material to be covered in one slender volume, Ross has chosen her examples well and provided a competent overview.
