I COULD DO THAT Esther Morris Gets Women the Vote

by | Read by Joan Allen

Children Ages 6+ • 18 min. • Unabridged • © 2005

"I can do that!" exclaims Esther Morris many times throughout her life, beginning with daily chores at home and ultimately challenging the men-only political world of the United States in the 1800s. Ironically, it is her own sons who remind her of her capability when it comes to filling a judgeship and, simultaneously, being Wyoming’s first woman to hold public office. Esther Morris was a force in bringing the vote to women in her state and an inspiration to others. Joan Allen narrates energetically, never letting the solemnity of the issues or hardships of pioneer life overshadow the determination of this courageous woman. Esther’s spunk shines through as she repeats her encouraging philosophy time and again: “It was more likely that things were about to change than that things would stay the same."
