Teaching with Primary Sources: History Makers: Women in American Politics
June 18 - June 20
June 18 – 20, 2019 plus follow-up in the academic year
This free workshop, sponsored by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program, will focus on each wave of the American feminist movement in the United States. We will consider how women have advocated for political, social, economic, and cultural change over the last century. Teachers will have opportunities to learn how to find and implement the many resources of the Library of Congress, including their new exhibition, “Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote.” Topics for study will include: suffrage, women–centered legislation, and social movements of the past and today.
