Ninety years ago today, suffragists won the right for women to vote in the United States.
This is going to be a very short “The Best…” list because I’ve already collected many related resources for a lesson on my United States History class blog. Since it’s late, and I’m tired, I will pointing people to that link instead of redoing it all here. But I’ll also include a couple of new resources.
Here are my choices for The Best Resources For Learning About Women’s Suffrage:
The Associated Press has a good interactive. Click on “milestones.”
Brittanica has an interactive map tracing the history of women’s suffrage.
How Stuff Works has several short videos on the women’s suffrage movement.
Women Work For A Better America is my lesson that’s filled with resources at our class blog.
A timeline of women’s right to vote – interactive comes from The Guardian.
Anti-Suffragette postcards is from History Extra.
100 Years Ago, The 1913 Women’s Suffrage Parade is a photo gallery form The Atlantic.
