As part of our celebration of the centennial of women’s suffrage, we reflect on the contributions that Western Pennsylvania women have made to our city, country, and world. In this program, educators will learn about influential Pittsburgh women and opportunities to celebrate them as part of teaching social studies, civics, and other disciplines. Making use of museum exhibits and online resources, educators will discover new stories to integrate into their classroom teaching to bring women’s stories to light in 2020 and beyond.
