Votes for Women!

The Fight for Women's Suffrage

Movements and Moments That Changed America

On December 10, 1869, Governor John Campbell of the Wyoming Territory signed the women's suffrage bill into law. For the first time, women had the right to vote, although this was limited to women in the Wyoming Territory. Through accessible yet engaging text enhanced by appealing images and fascinating sidebars, students will learn the struggles and triumphs of the social activists that changed the face of voting. They'll meet the woman behind the Wyoming law, Esther Morris. She rose from a bleak childhood in an orphanage to become one of the most important people in the women's suffrage movement. They'll also meet suffrage activists including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Lucy Stone, and examine how their legacy continues to impact women's lives today.
