Remembering the Ladies: A Coloring Book is now available on Kickstarter

“And by the way in the new Code of Laws…I desire you would remember the ladies… If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion and will not hold ourselves bound by any Laws in which we have no voice or Representation.”  Abigail Adams, writing to her husband John at the Continental Congress March 31,1776

“We feel that for too long our leaders have used politics as the art of the possible. The challenge now is to practice politics as the art of making what appears to be impossible, possible.”  Student Body President Hillary Rodham (later Clinton) delivering a graduation address at Wellesley College, May 1969.

Remembering the Ladies: From Patriots in Petticoats to Presidential Candidates — Founding Mothers, Suffragists and Activists, and Politicians Who Paved the Way

Since before the American republic was founded, women have sought inclusion in its political life — yet many of their stories are relatively unknown.

This book will invite readers to literally color in the remarkable contributions of these courageous and tenacious women — founding mothers whose efforts aided the American Revolution, generations of abolitionists, suffragists, feminists, labor and civil rights leaders who fought for the vote and other rights for women, and women who sought and sometimes achieved elective and appointed office.

In addition to a coloring page, each entry will include a short biography, a fascinating fact and a quote by the woman.  It will also include suggestions for further reading for kids, teens, and adults and a note where a museum dedicated to her can be found (if one exists).
