Sign up your class for this free, interactive student webinar workshop series drawing from the Museum's collections.

Discover diverse leaders within the women’s suffrage movement and the tactics they used to expand voting rights. Learn about how their racial and ethnic identities and class experiences shaped their political views and strategies. Looking back 100 years to the passage of the 19th amendment, students will explore the legacy and shortcomings of the movement for votes for women and learn about the importance of voting rights now.   

Students will join other students in a live Zoom session led by Museum Educators. Individuals or classes are invited. Teachers interested in registering their classes can do so. 

FREE. Advance registration required.    

Registration Details: Individuals or classes are invited to register. Teachers interested in registering a class of up to 35 students can do so. Multiple classes from the same school can register if there is a different teacher in charge of the registration for each class. 

How it Works:  Students will join other students in these live and interactive sessions led over Zoom by Museum Educators in a setting that balances active engagement and privacy.  Participants will see and discuss visuals from the Museum’s exhibitions and collections and connect the past to our present.
