In the middle of the nineteenth century women's rights became a cause for which many women were willing to fight. The Women's Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848 was the first attack in a battle that would last for many years. Through an examination of the declaration written and signed at that conference and a variety of other activities, students will discover the impact of that event on their lives today. They will also gain insight by studying a suffrage campaign song and by analyzing political cartoons on the topic.
Handouts, discussions and primary source documents are included in this easy-to-use resource.
Students will be amazed to discover the efforts it took over a period of more than 70 years to obtain the right to vote for women. As they investigate and examine the Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions, history will come alive!
