The year is 1915 and Alabama suffragists are asking “What is the best path forward to secure voting rights for women?” This resource guides students through the history of women’s suffrage and asks young people to consider what decision they may have made if they were living in 1915. Would they look to the federal government to take action? Would they fight for change on the state level? Or would they work to change society’s perception of women? 

“Votes for Women: Suffrage 1915” was made in partnership with Alabama Public Television as a component of the interactive learning experience “Unstoppable: The Road to Women’s Rights.” Further resources and digital field trips can be found at
