    As a fan of the Dear America series as an adolescent, picking this up off the shelf at Goodwill was a no-brainer. This book delves into the troubles and triumphs of a teenage daughter of a suffragette living in Washington D.C. during WWI. Having just done some research on Alice Paul myself, I am pleased by how the author brings this historical moment to life, especially bringing to light the injustices borne by those who sacrificed to stand up for what they believed in and secure the rights that [...]

    A Time For Courage is about a girl named Kathleen Bowen and her life. Kathleen's mom and the woman in their town started a picket line to try and get the women's right to vote. Kathleen's mom gets arrested for doing the picket line. Kathleen's best friend moves away and she is very upset. Kathleen's mom gets out of jail but is still does the picket line.I would recommend this book to anyone who like to learn about the worlds history. My favorite part of the book is when Kathleen's mom gets out o [...]

    This book is about a girl named Kat whose mother is in the picket line fighting for women's rights. Her mother was hit by men and sent to jail many times. I learned that women didn't always have the right to vote and be equal to men, and that we should be thankful we do have rights and are equals.

    I found this book by accident while browsing library ebooks from my home computer. I'm a big fan of historical fiction — especially if it's told from the perspective of a young adult. Having little knowledge about the women's suffrage movement of the early twentieth century, or the beginnings of the US involvement in the Great War, I borrowed this book to read in hopes that it would enlighten me.Kat Bowen has the same worries as any typical girl of thirteen years old, such as learning percenta [...]

    A Time for Courage (Suffragette Diary) / 0-590-51141-6In 1917, young Kat feels ambivalent about her mother's fight for suffrage. She is proud of her mother for fighting this important fight, proud that her mother wants her daughters to be full citizens of the United States, with the right to vote, the right to elected representation. At the same time, however, she fears that her mother may be injured or killed during her peaceful demonstrations, and she gently resents that her own life must take [...]

    To say that Kathleen "Kat" Bowen's life is boring compared to her other members of her family is a bit of an understatement. In this diary, we see through her eyes the women's suffrage movement, the beginning of World War I, and a great deal of change in this country in 1917. It makes me feel amazed and proud to stand up for women's suffrage that still continues to this day.I wanted to read this in honor of the new Suffragettes film coming out later this year, and this book provides a first hand [...]

    This was an interesting book. I knew something about the sufferage movement before I read it, including the atrocities visited upon the women arrested for their "crimes," but it never quite dawned on me that the president himself was sopig-headed, I guess is the word. For lack of better term. I mean, Wilson has never been my favorite of the presidents, but seriously? This wasn't the best book in the world from a literary standpoint, but I think Lasky definitely gets across the fear someone would [...]

    Kathleen is not happy with the Suffrage, and her Mom is put in jail, twice. She wishes she could change it. But she can`t, so the law won`t change! Sometimes, when her Dad is home late, she has to eat alone, and usually with him, dinner is very quiet. Kat doesn`t know why, but it just is. When her sister, Cassie, comes home for summer from college, the first dinner is quiet, and Kathleen knows just why. All that Cassie is interested in is the Great War and the Suffrage, and she knows that the fa [...]

    Bibliography:Lasky, Kathryn. A Time for Courage: The Suffragette Diary of Kathleen Bowen. New York: , 2002. Summary:Kat is the youngest daughter of an affluent family living in Washington D.C. in 1917. Her mother is a part of the Women's Movement fighting for the vote. Kat helps make banners and delivers them to picketers outside of the White House. Things start off peaceful but as the country gets swept up in the Great War, the demonstrations become violent. The police start arresting the picke [...]

    Part of the reason why I have always been involved in politics is because I want my voice to be heard and in order for me as a woman to voice my opinion, many women before me had to fight for the right. This book captures the politics of the time not just women working for the right to vote but the threat of World War I. It shows just how dividing the issue was and the impact that it had on families. Kathleen is a very believable character. She is a young girl who wants equal rights but at the s [...]

    Although many women still feel mistreated and second-class in the U.S. today, there was a time not that long ago when things were even worse for them. For much of the country's history women were not allowed to vote. Period. They legal rights were limited (they couldn't sue in court), and higher education was sometimes denied to them. Although technically free, women of that time weren't much above slaves as far as personal power went.This book shows events happening in 1917 in which women began [...]

    It is hard to imagine a time when women did not have any rights, but they did not get that privilege until 1920. Kat's mother is a fictional character, but the historical events have been documented. Women were given very little consideration from Pilgrim days on. If a woman hurt herself falling on ice, her husband could demand retribution for her being incapacitated. Women could not own property, could not sue for damages, and were not legal guardians of their own children.Champions of women's [...]

    "If we could just realize we are all humans and should have all rights due to human biengs. If women if women suffrege can help peaple as peaple,human beings, then that is worth in awful lot."(pg.96)- Kat. The main character of the story kathranie grace bowen or "kat" sure goes thru a lot. In the quote above in a short summary i would say that it basicly means "If only people can see people as people. and this sentence discribes the women suffrege a lot. it not only realates to the women sufrege [...]

    It's 1917 in Washington, D.C, and as the Great War rages in Europe, thirteen-year-old Kathleen Bowen is caught up in a fight closer to home. Her mother, sister Nell, and Auntie Claire are suffragists, fighting for voting rights for women, to the disapproval of her Uncle Bayard and the worry of her father. Kat and her cousin Alma, who are the exact same age, want to help, but they are too young to join the picket line. As it begins to seem more and more likely that the United States will enter th [...]

    This is the first Dear America book I have read since I was a child. I didn't read this one when I was younger, probably because it was published after I had grown out of the Dear America series and moved on to other historical fiction.It was a disappointing read because this book didn't captivate me in the way that I remember Dear America books doing when I was a kid. The writing seemed discontinuous and shallow. Also, with this particular story, I found the central character to be underdevelop [...]

    Kat Bowen must be respectful of her family's noble causes, her father's a doctor, her sisters wish to help in the war and her mother is in the picket for women's' rights. Young Kat has many struggles to go through, her biggest worry is for her mom, who with many other women get imprisoned. Near the beginning her thoughts were her parents actually divorcing, which was extremely uncommon back then. There is a happy ending at the end of the book, but the family will still struggle with some loss. B [...]

    Lasky, Kathryn. A time for courage; The Suffragette Diary of Kathleen Bowen, Washington DC 1917, Inc.; 1St Edition edition, 2002.The story takes place in 1917 and our character Kat feels indifferent about her moms fight for suffrage. She is proud of her mom but more worried about her personal safety during her demonstrations. This has some great historical significance for freshman year high school. This diary really tells the story of what it was like to witness these events. I enjoy the fact t [...]

    This is one of my favorites in the Dear America series because it deals with an important part of the Suffrage movement that is largely overlooked. I love how the author incorporated Alice Paul and Lucy Burns into the story and had them interact with Kathleen. It made the story seem that much more real for me. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Dear America or women's suffrage in general.

    This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents. I find today's generations seem to recall more when they learn through other people (pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc.), so what better way to teach history than through someone else's perspective? Yes, "authentic" diaries would be "better", but would the language really hold the modern student's attention? Did the diary writer know what WOULD be important in the context of history? Probably not.

    This historical fiction book is about a suffragette named Kathleen Bowen, who writes her diary while living under a time of women suffrage during the early 20th century. But there were so many awful criticisms by narrowly minded anti-suffragists who were against their right to vote, they believed that the march was a silly and stupid, but also they used names as succubus, unwomanly and witches, especially Uncle Bayard who totally opposed it.

    I read this quick book on a plane flight last month (Memphis Trip) I actually learned a lot. I'm so thankful for the right to vote that the women in this book worked so hard to get. I liked the format of this book, all diary entries from the daughter of a suffragette. I'll definately read more of this series. Thanks for recommending Stephanie!

    It was a really good book. In class we were reading one of these books and I thought it would be good too. But it was really good. Kathleen Bowen has a mother who is on the picket line trying to protest not getting the right for women to vote. This is a must read for girls who are aged 9-14. Read the story to find out what happened to Kat, Kathleen.

    I am still reading this book. This is an interesting book or diary, of a young 13 year old girl whose mother and aunt are part of the women's party during the suffrage movement. It has been especially poignant now with everything going on about the elections.

    One of my favorite Dear America's. Kathleen is a girl capable of very much, once she gets over her timidness. Watching how brave and stubborn her mother is changes her throughout the book. Great history lesson, as always - very real writing.

    I like the book. I think each of the characters stood out on their own. The book would be good for Pre-teens and teenagers to read. I would recommend the book to a friend. I am not that into history, but I did like reading this fictional story and wanted to read the facts in the back of the book.

    This just caught my eye in the juniors section of the library and I got it on a whim. It's very interesting, however, the only disappointing thing about it is that Kathleen Bowen is fictitious and therefore it is not an actual account of a suffragette.

    I read this for my Social Studies intensive course. For kids, it's a good introduction to the history of women's suffrage. I liked the way it balanced the girl's personal struggles of growing up with the insanity of a country joining WWI.
