This curriculum project was created in celebration of the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in Washington state. The project honors a century of champions whose determination and leadership provided young women today with voices in government and equal rights, and opportunities to pursue their dreams.
The materials include a teacher's guide, as well as a six-week series that looks at several women who worked tirelessly to make sure that women's equal right to vote was matched with equal opportunity in other important aspects of daily life. These individuals orchestrated changes that would ensure that young women today have the opportunity to realize their dreams and accomplish their life goals. Hard copies of this project are available by contacting The Seattle Times Newspapers in Education (NIE) (the project is also available online through the NIE website).
This curriculum was made possible through a partnership between The Seattle Times Newspapers in Education Program, HistoryLink.org, and Heritage 4Culture.
