Overview:

This lesson addresses the development of women’s rights in the United States. It begins with an overview of women’s roles in the nineteenth century, then moves to a discussion of the fight for women’s suffrage, and concludes by looking at the ultimately failed battle to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. In the lesson, the students interpret primary-source documents such as a legal ruling, cartoons and a painting using a Primary Source Analysis Worksheet that teaches them to approach such materials systematically.
