Description

JEANNETTE RANKIN: AMERICA'S FIRST CONGRESSWOMAN, a book for middle-grade readers and others who love American history, tells the inspiring true of a truly groundbreaking American woman.

Born on a ranch in Montana, Rankin was the first woman elected to Congress, in 1916, a full century before Hillary Clinton made her historic run for president. A devout pacifist, Rankin was the only member of Congress to vote against the U.S. fighting in World Wars I and II. Over the span of 60 years, she would become one of America's greatest feminists, pacifists and suffragists. Late in her life, Rankin led the Jeannette Rankin Brigade on a march in Washington against the Vietnam War. She fought for what she believed in. She never backed down.

The book, which contains 60 historic photoghraphs, is the second in Peter Aronson's Groundbreaker Series: Middle-grade biographies about extraordinary people doing extra ordinary things.

Jeannette Rankin was born on a Montana ranch in 1880, in the valley of the Bitterroot Mountains, in a pioneer's land. She would leave this land to make a lasting mark on her country. Rankin was the first woman elected to Congress, in 1916, a full century before Hillary Clinton ran for president. A devout pacifist, Rankin was the only member of Congress to vote against the U.S. fighting in World Wars I and II. Over the span of 60 years, she would become one of America's foremost feminists, pacifists and suffragists. In her 80s, Rankin led a march in Washington against the Vietnam War. She fought for what she believed in. She never backed down."
