The lesson introduces students to women’s suffrage, the fight for women’s right to vote in the United States. Key leaders of the movement and important events are summarized, as well as an introduction to the 19th amendment. Most students are unaware that at one time in history, women were not permitted to vote, and had less rights than men. They were treated like second-class citizens. The lesson may be used in conjunction with a Susan B. Anthony lesson.
