Publisher Summary

Not allowed to go hiking with her father and brothers because she is a girl, Bessie learns about women's rights when she attends a suffrage rally led by Susan B. Anthony.

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in California with Marching with Aunt Susan: Susan B. Anthony and the Fight for Women's Suffrage. Inspired by the real-life journals of Bessie Keith Pond--a 10-year-old girl who lived in California during the suffrage campaign--this picture book offers a child's-eye view of the struggle waged by women to gain the right to vote.

All Bessie wants is to go hiking with her father and brothers. But it's 1896 and girls don't get to hike. They can't vote either, which Bessie discovers when Susan B. Anthony comes to town to help lead the campaign for women's suffrage. Inspired by the great woman, Bessie becomes involved in the movement and discovers that hiking is only one of the many things that women and girls aren't allowed to do. But small efforts can result in small changes—and maybe even big ones.
