Teaching Resources for Women’s History and Women’s Rights

March is Women’s History Month! We have teaching resources for teaching about women’s rights and changing roles in American history during this or any month.

Using the founding documents of the United States and historical records at the National Archives, students will determine how and why women fought for the right to vote. Students will explore the challenges suffragists faced and discover why the fight for women’s voting rights persisted even after the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

Access hundreds of primary sources and teaching activities related to women on our Women’s Rights page on DocsTeach, the online tool for teaching with documents from the National Archives.
