Women’s History Interactive PowerPoint

Often in the study of American History it would seem only white men did anything of note. Recently, educators are making an effort to be inclusive of all who made a difference. One such group is Women.

300 years is a long t ime
300 Years is a LONG Time
  • We are now going to make a human timeline.
  • We will begin in 1620 when Pilgrim men voted on the way the colony should be governed.
  • There may be important dates marked along the way…
  • I will each of you a date arrange yourselves in chronological order.
timeline questions
Timeline Questions
  • How many years from the time white men voted until women voted?
  • How many years did all women try to get the vote?
  • How many years did white men try to get the vote?
  • FYI… black men got the vote right after the Civil War . In the south Jim Crow Laws prevented all blacks from voting but that is a story for another day…
what took so long
What took so long???
  • When women arrived from Europe to the colonies, voting was one of the least of unfair laws about how women were treated.
  • Women could NOT:

Go to School then High School then College

Own anything, their husbands owned their clothes, their children, everything including anything they inherited from their own families.

what about girls
What about Girls???
  • Girls could not wear pants in fact they had to wear so many underclothes that they may have weighed as much as 15 extra pounds.
  • They could not participate in sports or even ride a bike.
  • The future include one of a few options:

Marry and become ruled by your husband

Become a teacher(need to go to HS)

Become a “Old Maid” and live out your life on the goodness of your family and in return you take care of them.

Another Activity

Speaker Women
  • One law we haven’t talked about is Women could not talk at a gathering where men were present.
  • HOWEVER, women became involved in two causes they believed in : Temperance and Anti –Slavery.
  • They began to break the law and speak out and people including men began to listen.
  • So then they began to speak out, have marches and in general make everyone aware of a Women’s Right to Vote.

  • On August 26 , 1920 -300 years after white

men , 27 million WOMEN got the vote. All the heroines who fought so hard were gone but their legacy allows the choices you and I have today. We can vote, go to college, wear pants, speak to any group, own our personal belongings including property, have any career we want ..
