Women's Suffrage Movement in the United States

Introduction

Women's suffrage involves giving women the right to vote in U.S. elections. Multiple generations of women and supporters lectured, marched, and lobbied to help achieve one of the most radical changes in the Constitution which guaranteed women the right to vote. Women and supporters campaigned at the White House by having marches, picket lines, and demonstrations to increase political pressure and appeal to the president and congress more directly. Many protestors were arrested on petty charges and placed in jails.

Conclusion

The Women's Suffrage Movement is not a big topic in any history books, if at all, but it will forever hold it's place in American and Women's History. This movement left a lasting image on this country and individuals who are always looking for change, it has brought books, music, and movies into our media. With this WebQuest students will get the opportunities to display and improve their research, public speaking, and writing skills. This WebQuest and links provided have given students the opportunity to learn about a very powerful movement, women, community activities, and more. I hope this WebQuest interests students of upcoming generations to research these topics and try to fix problems they think are unfair.
