The Voice That Won the Vote:
How One Woman's Words Made History

by Elisa Boxer, illus. by Vivien Mildenberger

Dear Reader,

2020 marks the women’s suffrage centennial. One hundred years ago, after decades of perseverance, women were finally given the right to vote. But it almost didn’t happen.

My book tells the little-known story of a mother named Febb Burn, who helped save suffrage, with a handwritten note to her son.

As a journalist, I’ve always been drawn to stories of unsung heroes. Febb Burn was someone who dared to express her voice, at a time when most of society told women to keep their opinions to themselves. Her courage led to one of the nation’s biggest wins for women’s rights.

I hope this book helps children realize just how much their voices matter.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to connecting with you!

Warmly,
Elisa Boxer
