Women’s Suffrage and Voting Rights Now 

Join us for an Interactive Student Workshop for Grades 2 - 5.

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.
