 The women's suffrage movement in the United States achieved its goal of winning full voting rights for women when the nineteenth amendment was ratified in 1920. The leaders of this effort were two women who served their gender and their country,Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
 Women's Suffrage is a change of attitudes through the passage of time. Students will read a background on the fight for women's rights and its eventual success in the United States and around the world. The purpose of this lesson is to allow students to explore the vital themes and people of the women’s suffrage movement.

Teacher Reflections:
 The next time I do this lesson I would like to allow the students to do their own research instead of relying so much on the website I gave. I feel that depending on the ability of the class,I can give them the freedom of finding all of their own sites.
