Voices for Suffrage

What was so important about the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention? How did the path to suffrage differ between states? Why did it take over seventy years for women to gain suffrage? In Voices for Suffrage, students use primary sources to explore, replay, and engage with these questions and many more regarding women’s right for the vote. Students will learn about the tactics, arguments, historical events, and key people of the movement, and have fun doing it!
