NEW! SHAKESPEARE AND THE SUFFRAGISTS

The right to vote is such an important and incredible freedom in our democracy. Shakespeare and the Suffragists tells the story of women gaining the right to vote 100 years ago, and just what our favorite bard, William Shakespeare had to do with it. Geared toward middle and high school students, this streaming project combines lessons on the Suffragist movement, a history of voting rights and laws of the United States of America, as well as introducing students to some of Shakespeare’s most famous scenes involving strong and inspiring women.
