August Feature: Woman's Place in America
How do these sources contrast visions of America and woman’s place in it?
This lesson uses primary sources from the Center for Legislative Archives and the National Archives to engage students in studying the Progressive Era issue of woman suffrage. It features petitions, correspondence, and legislative records sent to Congress as it debated suffrage prior to passage of the 19th Amendment.
Our educational resources are designed to assist teachers with using primary source materials to integrate Congress into history, government, and civics classes.
