Marching with Aunt Susan: Susan B. Anthony and the Fight for Women’s Suffrage by Claire Rudolph Murphy, illustrated by Stacey Schuett (Peachtree Publishers, 2011)

It
captures the view of women’s suffrage from young Bessie Keith Pond’s
point of view, a real 10-year-old girl living in Berkley, California in
1896. When Susan B. Anthony comes to visit Bessie’s home for tea with
the ladies, Bessie is inspired by the elderly lady’s speech and adds her
voice to the movement.

Susan B. Anthony by Alexandra Wallner (Holiday House, 2012)

Instrumental
in crusading for women’s rights, Anthony’s  voice, though unpopular
with some, could not be denied. And eventually the US Congress listened.
The Nineteenth Amendment was passed and since 1920, women have had the
right to vote.
