CARRIE CHAPMAN CATT
How many stars are in the sky?
Do germs have personalities?
And why can’t Mama vote?
Carrie’s curiosity led her to college, to a career in journalism, and finally to becoming the leader of the women’s suffrage movement.
Carrie knew the movement needed a change. She set out to shake up suffrage, daring millions to question a women’s right to vote.
On August 18, 1920, Carrie pinned a yellow rose to her dress and waited while lawmakers in Tennessee cast their votes.
About the Author
Dare to Question: Carrie Chapman Catt's Voice for the Vote (People Who Shaped Our World) written by Jasmine A. Stirling. It is beautifully illustrated by Udayana Lugo. The author did a great job introducing Carrie Chapman Catt to younger readers. I loved the journey that we were taken on. We see that Carrie questioned lots of things when she was younger. She would not take the "that is just how it is" as the answer. Carrie is a figure in the women's suffrage movement that is important and I loved getting to see her back story.
