In this activity, you will analyze documents pertaining to the women’s suffrage movement as it intensified following passage of the 15th Amendment that guaranteed the right to vote for African American men. Documents were chosen to call attention to the struggle’s length, the movement’s techniques, and the variety of arguments for and against giving women the vote.
