History textbooks often offer a simplistic narrative of the nation’s experience of granting women the ballot, but a closer look paints a much more complex history of women’s voting rights activism.
With funding from the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program, ALA's Teaching with Primary Sources: Women's Suffrage & Libraries program seeks to shed light on lesser-known histories and perspectives from the women’s suffrage era and create user-friendly resources so libraries across the United States can lead impactful conversations about this important part of our nation’s past.
