Votes for Women


This Jackdaw traces the history of the American woman’s suffrage movement. The broadsheets on the anti-suffrage and English movements are topics often neglected in studies of woman’s suffrage. The documents all contribute to the portrayal of woman’s suffrage as daring, resourceful, intellectual, and courageous as well as sometimes contentious and often witty. Students and teachers alike will smile and learn from the colorful postcards and many hands-on documents. Historian: Christine Scriabine. The contents of this Jackdaw feature:

  • The Beginning of Suffrage Agitation
  • Women Organize
  • The Antisuffrage Movement
  • The English Movement
  • The Great Suffrage Battle
