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.”
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.
Scholastic has lots of resources
Winning the vote for women is from the Smithsonian.
The Fight for Women’s Suffrage Videos is from The History Channel.
