KIRKUS REVIEW

Belva Lookwood, first woman lawyer, first woman to run for President, fight for equal rights for women, will prove an exciting heroine to young girls on the verge of career-thinking. The author of Doctor Elizabeth has drawn a woman of firm purposed good intentions, fine personal relationships, who remained a wife and mother while courageously fought against unjust male opposition. A friend of the crusaders of her day, Delva was nominated for President in 1884, and, although women had no vote, she polled all the electoral votes of the State of Indiana. Well handled and unfamiliar historical material worked into a good story.
