This year marks the 100th anniversary of Congress’s passing a constitutional amendment to give women the right to vote. NewseumED offers free online resources to explore the history and struggles of the suffrage movement—from artifacts on the Seneca Falls Convention to a video recounting Susan B. Anthony’s arrest for voting to a timeline on major events in the fight for gender equality. NewseumED’s lesson plans and activities can be used to observe Women’s History Month (March) and all yearlong. The standards-aligned lessons and activities support historical connections, media literacy, and civics and citizenship. Teachers may need to sign into NewseumED for access to some of the resources; registration is free.
