Marta Breen and Jenny Jordahl

Women in Battle
150 Years of fighting for freedom, equality and sisterhood

150 years ago, women and men led very different lives. Women could not vote or make their own money. They had no control over their own bodies.
A woman's father would make her decisions until she was married. Then her husband would take over.

This changed when women began to organize. In this book writer Marta Breen and illustrator Jenny Jordahl tells the story about the women's movements many dramatic battles.
