MAYORS SHARE THEIR STORIES: 136 years after Susanna Salter became the first woman elected who served as mayor in the entire world. Interspersed quotes from Salter introduce three women who have served or are serving as mayor of their cities--they hail from different regions of the country. They each share examples of the ways in which Susanna's experiences mirror their own.

The website includes more quotes from women who have held or are currently holding the position of mayor in their respective cities.

BOOK BLURB: In 1887, the state of Kansas gave women the right to vote in municipal elections. But some men in the city of Argonia, Kansas didn’t think women should have a say in choosing their next mayor, so they put a woman on the ballot―as a joke. That woman was Susanna Salter―and soon the men would find the joke was on them! Narrated by a grandmother who remembered what happened on that election day, this is the true story of a woman who stood up for her right to vote and accomplished so much more.​
