Women’s Suffrage

In our Women’s Suffrage lesson plan, students will learn about the women’s suffrage movement, including key ideas, main figures, major events, and its lasting impact.

Our Women’s Suffrage lesson plan introduces students to women’s suffrage, the fight for women’s right to vote in the United States. Key leaders of the movement and important events are summarized, as well as an introduction to the 19th amendment. Most students are unaware that at one time in history, women were not permitted to vote, and had fewer rights than men. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to complete two activities: one in which they think of two new slogans the women’s suffrage movement could have used during their protests and the other in which they write a persuasive letter to Woodrow Wilson, asking him to approve the 19th Amendment. Students are also asked to correctly match key political figures to given facts.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define women’s suffrage, describe women’s suffrage in America, and identify important events and people related to the voting rights movement.
