High School 9-12
This lesson focuses on the Women’s suffrage movement, which was started during the Gilded Age (1865-1900). By studying and learning about this movement, students will begin to grasp how much was changed during and by the women who continually fought for equality and rights. In this lesson, students will learn the thoughts and thinking of the time period by analyzing primary documents from the era. By studying this information, students will, hopefully, start to really understand and and realize how different our world today would have been different if these women never stood up and fought for their rights.
