Praise

Praise for Roses and Radicals by Susan Zimet:

“My mother said, ‘Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.’ Roses and Radicals is a must read about the history of the suffragist movement in America-the oppression of women-and the good, the bad, and the ugly relating to their struggle for the right to vote. It is not just a book for women, but for everyone, especially future generations because when we don’t know our history, we may sadly repeat it.” —Dr. Bernice A. King, CEO, The King Center, Daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King

“From Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Alice Paul and every crucial suffragist in between, Susan Zimet’s Roses and Radicals offers a comprehensive and compelling account of a truly collective victory more than seventy years in the making. Zimet unpacks all of the intricacies of the suffrage movement, never shying away from its flaws, turbulent partnerships, and differing dogmas. For those tempted to label it an important book for young girls, think more broadly; it is an important book for all of us.” —Tanya Lee Stone, Sibert Medalist and NAACP Image Award-winning auhtor of, most recently, Girl Rising: Changing the World One Girl at a Time

“The brave women and men who fought so hard for women’s right to vote show us how to be brave when we need it the most. Which is always. Roses and Radicals is a must read for all kids and citizens!” —Andrea Beaty, award-winning author of Ada Twist, Scientist and Rosie Revere, Engineer

She [Zimet] reveals their complexities by discussing their marital and family choices, their racial backgrounds, their personality and generational differences, and their opinions on how efforts were to be organized. Readers will be captivated from beginning to end.” —School Library Journal

“A timely, eye-opening history.” —Kirkus Reviews

A conversational tone. . .makes this primer all the more accessible and relevant, as does the observation that, with the proposed Equal Rights Amendment still in limbo, the struggle for women’s rights is in no way over.”  —Publishers Weekly

“Zimet’s use of narrative techniques in this work of nonfiction brings this history to life and, often, it makes for an exciting read.” —VOYA
