Women Get the Vote: America’s Suffrage Story

Teaching Artist: Karen Young

What if you were told that you couldn’t vote? That’s what half of the American adult population—the female half—was told until 1920. Using historical records and dramatic reenactment, Karen portrays a cantankerous suffragette and her modern day great-great-granddaughter so audiences can better understand the sacrifices made by our ancestors and the political responsibility we all have today as Americans.

Audience: Grades 5-12
