Jeannette Rankin

America's First Congresswoman

In 1916, Jeannette Rankin made history when she became the first woman elected to Congress, a full 100 years before Hillary Clinton made her historic run for president. Rankin was a groundbreaking politician, a leading suffragette, a leader in fighting for women's rights and, into her 90s, an outspoken anti-war activist fighting against the Vietnam War. She never gave in - and she never gave up. She was a #metoo leader a century ahead of her time. This inspiring biography for middle-grade readers, with more than 60 historic photographs, will be available March 6, 2019.
