Celebrate Extraordinary and Ordinary Women Throughout History

From artifacts on the Seneca Falls Convention to a video on Susan B. Anthony’s arrest to a timeline on major events in the fight for gender equality, NewseumED is a source for lesson plans and activities that can be used to observe Women’s History Month in March—and all year long. Newseum’s ED Collection includes a searchable timeline featuring more than 200 historical front pages, videos, and photographs. Many entries cover major events in securing rights for women, including Myra Bradwell’s Fight for Employment, the First Female Presidential Candidate, and the 19th Amendment. The collection also includes a media map exploring how the women’s suffrage movement and its critics tried to influence public opinion. Units with standards-aligned lesson plans, activities, and worksheets support historical connections, media literacy, and civics and citizenship. The Unsung Heroes section features articles about women who were pillars of change for women’s rights and voting rights. Their accomplishments have historical significance and continue to influence issues of gender equality today.
