Suffragists Oral History Project

http://bancroft.berkeley.edu/ROHO/projects/suffragist/

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: In the early 1970s the Suffragists Oral History Project, under the auspices of the Bancroft Library's Regional Oral History Office, collected interviews with twelve leaders and participants in the woman's suffrage movement. Tape-recorded and transcribed oral histories preserved the memories of these remarkable women, documenting formative experiences, activities to win the right to vote for women, and careers as leaders of the movements for welfare and labor reform, world peace, and the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Now, 25 years later, the nineteenth century meets the twenty-first as the words of these activist women, born from the 1860s to the 1890s, are made accessible via the Internet. Standards 8.6.6 and 11.10.7

http://www.law.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/anthony/sbahome.html

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: More than any other woman of her generation, Susan B.

She challenged this inequity by casting her ballot in Rochester, New York on November 5, 1872. Her trial for illegal voting created an opportunity for Anthony to spread her arguments for women's suffrage to a wider audience than ever before.... Follow the details of the trial here supported by a biography of Anthony, a timeline, the petition to Congress, the Nineteeth Amendment, a bibliography and much more. Standards 8.6.6 and 11.10.7

19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Women's Right to Vote (1920)

http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php?flash=true&doc=63

Rating: 2, High!

Description: The 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote after decades of difficult struggle, agitation, and protest. Between 1878, when the amendment was first introduced in Congress, and August 18, 1920, when it was ratified, champions of voting rights for women worked tirelessly, but strategies for achieving their goal varied. Some pursued a strategy of passing suffrage acts in each state--nine western states adopted woman suffrage legislation by 1912. Others challenged male-only voting laws in the courts. Militant suffragists used tactics such as parades, silent vigils, and hunger strikes. The National Archives' Digital Classroom Teaching With Documents project has a lesson called Woman Suffrage and the 19th Amendment at http://www.archives.gov/digital_classroom/lessons/woman_suffrage/woman_suffrage.html Standards 11.5.4 and 11.10.7
