With this lesson, students learn the background leading up to the passage of the 19th amendment. They will visit two stations that discuss the major protest activities from the National Woman’s Party, led by Alice Paul and Lucy Burns. They will analyze the methods of protest utilized by the NWP specifically the suffrage parade of 1913 and the silent sentinel protestors in front of the White House. This is a topic that is often overlooked, and that deserves more attention. You can view more in the preview here – The Women’s Rights Movement
