Get access to thousands of lesson plansJoin us
Born from the powerful, unwavering momentum of hundreds of women who first convened a women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York, the 19thAmendment to the United States Constitution the was ratified on August 18, 1920. Prior to the passage of the 19th Amendment, women in the United States did not have the right to vote, and enfranchisement was key to the American dream for many who yearned to participate in civil society. Discover the key figures in the Women’s Suffrage Movement, such as Ida B. Wells, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott who became key historical figures, although, sadly, many women who participated in the crusade for voting rights never lived to see ratification of the amendment.
Discover free lessons that will help your students learn more about this important time in history, highlighting important developments in not only Women’s Rights, but U.S. Civil Rights and other amendments to the Constitution.
