Midori Francis, Marisilda Garcia, Alicia Hall Moran, Mela Lee, and Tiana Carr combine to narrate this audiobook, which emphasizes the contributions of Asian, Black, Native American, Latinx, and other lesser-known women in the struggle for women's right to vote. Midori Francis exudes youth and earnestness in telling the story of Mabel Ping-Hua Lee, a 16-year-old Chinese suffragist leader in New York's Chinatown. Alicia Hall Moran is stately and stirring in reading the conclusion, a call to finish the fight for equality, including a quote from the late U.S. Representative Patsy Takemoto Mink, ". . . be willing to cut the first furrow in the ground and stand alone, if necessary." In this centennial celebration of women's suffrage, listeners are reminded that voting is power. L.T. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
