Written in the same vein as the recent best-selling titles I DISSENT and SHE PERSISTED, here is a nonfiction picture book biography of Belva Lockwood, a lawyer, activist and presidential candidate who devoted her life to overcoming obstacles and demanding equality for women. Activist Belva Lockwood never stopped asking herself the question Are women not worth the same as men? She had big dreams and didn't let anyone stand in her way--not her father, her law school, or even the U.S. Supreme Court. She fought for equality for women in the classroom, in the courtroom, and in politics. In her quest for fairness and parity, Lockwood ran for President of the United States, becoming the first woman on the ballot. In this riveting nonfiction picture book biography, award-winning author Kate Hannigan and celebrated artist Alison Jay illuminate the life of Lockwood, a woman who was never afraid to take the floor and speak her mind.… (més)

This books teaches lessons of being bold, determined, and strong. Kate Hannigan writes about Belva Lockwood and how she played a huge role in women's rights and also for everyone to have equal rights. The book encompasses Belva's whole life, from childhood to her adult life, she started off working as a teacher and noticing in her own school that girls and boys did not have equal rights, then she moved to Washington, fighting for equal pay and the right to vote, she was finally accepted into law school and eventually got a law degree, then soon ran for president. Throughout the book we see Belva being knocked down and everything being unequal, but it never stops Belva Lockwood and she is eventually successful in raising her own voice so that EVERYONE could be heard.

This was an excellent biography of Belva Lockwood's life and her role in the equal rights movement. Belva was exposed to many injustices in her life that led her to fight for equal rights for everyone, especially women. She began small by challenging the system to allow women to attend college. When she became a teacher she began to fight for the rights of young girls in school to be able to learn public speaking and physical education. She went on the become the first female lawyer to speak in front of the supreme court and then finally turned her attention towards women's right to vote. She was the first women to be on the presidential ballot, though she lost to president Cleveland. But she never gave up and fought for the rights of all people; men, women, black white, young, old.

"A Lady Has the Floor", the story of the women's rights activist who many people do not know about. Belva Lockwood was fighting for women's rights at the early age of 14 when she became a teacher. As a teacher she realized that she was making significantly less than her male counterparts. When she entered college she not only overcame the odds of being a female in the male dominated university but used it as a podium to begin work elevating a woman's status.
Before reading this book I had never heard of Belva Lockwood. She is an inspirational woman who excelled in fields primarily and traditionally held by .men. Her work pushed women to the forefront at a time when they were supposed to blend in. I enjoyed the writing and illustrations of this book. I felt the quotes from her throughout the pages were an excellent touch. I also enjoyed the timeline in the back of the book for time references to her accomplishments. ( )

I really enjoyed reading this book because it focuses on one of the most powerful women in history. Belva Lockwood was fighting for women's rights as early as the age of 14, when she became a teacher. She realized that she was only getting paid half of a mans salary. Her father did not want her to attend college, and the college that she was attending did not want her to study what were traditionally known as men's subjects (math, science and politics). After years of applying to law school, she was finally allowed to attend but was denied a diploma upon graduation. She demanded a diploma from the president of the law school, Ulysses S. Grant, who was also President of the United States. This book inspires children to go for their goals and beliefs, no matter what kind of restrictions exist. ( )
