New Suffrage Resources for Women’s History Month

FEBRUARY 25, 2020

There’s no doubt your students are very aware that it’s a presidential election year. But what they may not know is that 2020 is also the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote. Women’s History Month is a perfect time to dive deeply into the women’s suffrage movement.
 
To commemorate this milestone, we’ve created several new resources to help you teach about the importance of voting and how many U.S. citizens, including women, have had to fight for their right to vote.
