Celebrate Women's History

This Celebrate Women's History collection highlights texts, primary sources, lesson plans and videos to use with your students as they learn about the key figures, events, and legislation related to women's struggle for equal rights for the past 150 years.

The resources listed first are lessons, tasks and online exhibits, the components of which can be used directly with students. Following, find primary sources and classroom activities to further the understanding of the first wave of feminism including the fight for the right to vote. The collection ends with interviews with contemporary women and articles to raise awareness about gender inequalities that still exist.  Resources are for all grade levels.
