The American Association of University Women (AAUW) and the Newseum in Washington, DC made a major contribution last week with the launching of an educational module for the suffrage movement geared to educators and educational institutions. It’s also more than that. For the AAUW, the suffrage history module is part of a “Program in a Box” project possibility for AAUW members who are encouraged to reach out to educators and community media. Registered users of the Newseum web site can also access lesson plans, graphics, photos and primary documents. This extensive educational outreach is likely to strengthen the audience of interest for suffrage centennial celebrations nationwide, now and in the future.
SuffrageCentennials.com is supportive of parties, events and celebrations, large and small planned for fun and remembering the long and difficult struggle for women to win the vote in the United States and around the world.
