Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

This unit addresses the development of women’s rights in the United States. It begins with an overview of women’s roles in the nineteenth century, then moves to a discussion of the fight for women’s suffrage, and concludes by looking at the ultimately failed battle to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Students will interpret primary-source documents such as a legal ruling, cartoons and a painting using a Primary Source Analysis Worksheet that teaches them to approach such materials systematically.

In particular, the lesson addresses the backlash against the civil and women’s rights movements of the 1960s, focusing on the figure of Phyllis Schlafly and her group, “Stop ERA.”
