Summary:

Six-year-old Susan helps her grandmother in the kitchen and begins to learn the role of women in the household. It is 1825. Women are not allowed to vote, and the law says they must obey their husbands. Seeing how hard the women of her family work, Susan is struck by how unfair this law is. When she grows up, Susan will lead the movement to win women the right to vote.
