Ninety years ago today, suffragists won the right for many – but not all – 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:
