Many saw women as inferior and opposed equal suffrage. In this lesson, students will analyze various primary sources, leading up to the equal suffrage amendment. Some questions to think about during this lesson: How were women portrayed during this era? What would some consequences be for women in fighting for equal suffrage? Why would some be opposed to equal suffrage? Objectives: Students will be able to: Analyze political cartoons illustrating differing viewpoints on Womens Suffrage. Analyze and Discuss pictures, political cartoons, and newspaper headlines to gather conclusions about womens political plight during this era. Use a variety of sources to write a newspaper editorial on the justification of equal suffrage. Standards: USHG Progressive Movement, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Jane Addams, Carrie Chapman Catt, Eugene Debs, W.E.B. DuBois, role of reform organizations, movements and individuals in promoting change (e.g., Woman s Christian Temperance Union,1 settlement house movement, conservation Uptain Sinclair, Ida Tarbell).
