Ballots for Belva by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen

Book Description

Belva Lockwood was the first woman to officially run for president and appear on a ballot. She won 4,149 recorded votes, to be exact, in the 1884 presidential election - long before women were even given the right to vote. Belva was a larger-than-life personality and way ahead of her time. She received a law degree when most schools did not accept women, and went on to be a vocal supporter for equal rights - not just for women, but for all Americans, regardless of their race or gender. This book is perfect for a year when America might elect its first woman president.
