A Voice, A Vote: Voting Rights and the Women’s Suffrage Movement

Explore the history of voting rights in this interactive program for students, using the women’s suffrage movement as an example. Trace how suffragists across the country and here in Western Pennsylvania used other rights, such as the right to protest and petition the government, to advocate for the vote before finally gaining suffrage. This program uses content from the exhibit and the History Center’s collections and includes a discussion of other disenfranchised groups and how they advocated for voting rights in the past. 

Grades: 3 – 12 (content adapted by grade level)
Cost: $75 for a 45-minute session. Free for all Title I schools.
