Reader Review: Grace and Grit

Book cover for Grace and Grit by Lilly LedbetterEditor’s note: This review was submitted by a library patron during the 2013 Adult Summer Reading program. We will continue to periodically share the best of these reviews throughout the year. 

Grace and Grit” is the story of Lilly Ledbetter, an employee of Goodyear Tire & Rubber, and her fight for equal rights and fairness in the workplace. This book tells the story of a courageous woman from a poor county in Alabama who, because of her struggles throughout her life, helped give all women in our country the right to be paid the same as anyone else for doing the same job. I enjoyed this book because it is a true story about one of the heroes of our time. She fought all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States for the rights that she and all other working women in this country deserve.

Three words or phrases that describe this book: empowering, inspiring and powerful.

Who should pick up this book? Anyone who cares about equal rights for everyone would find this book to be very informative and interesting.
