One of the main jobs of historians is to interpret the past by reviewing primary documents, scholarly secondary sources, and then creating an analysis of this research. After reading your text and reviewing the assigned materials, submit an analysis of women’s suffrage.
You might want to consider the following questions, but you are not limited to them: Trace the women’s suffrage movement from the roots to the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Also, study the anti-suffrage resources. Did the movement only involve men or women? What images, words or phrases jump out to you? What can we in the present-day United States learn from the women’s fight for suffrage?
This assignment should be at least 300 words and contain your reactions or questions about some specific issue within the historical narrative that you find compelling. For full credit, your paper must not simply sum up the reading or repeat points made there. Rather, I’m looking for you to create your own interpretation, explain the emotional content of the piece, or discuss some original insight. Include citations as needed.
