National History Day 2020-2021: Communication in History

Suffrage as Communication

The Schlesinger Library holds a great deal of material related to the woman suffrage movement. Archival collections with relevant digital material can be found on this page of the guide. More information from the Schlesinger Library pertaining to woman suffrage accessible online can be found in the For more information about the Schlesinger's holdings pertaining to suffrage, see the Women's Suffrage Guide and the Radcliffe College Suffrage Guide

Other relevant resources can be found in the Long 19th Amendment Project Portal and the Suffrage School, two new tools launched by the Schlesinger Library in 2020, supported by funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Portal is an open-access digital portal that facilitates interdisciplinary, transnational scholarship and innovative teaching around the history of gender and voting rights in the United States. The Suffrage School is a platform where a broad array of researchers, writers, and teachers have been invited to create a series of digital teaching modules. Each lesson in the Suffrage School connects in rich and unpredictable ways to the Library’s Long 19th Amendment Project, which tackles the tangled history of gender and American citizenship.
