Do your students know about the struggle to pass the 19th Amendment? Do they also know that it didn't give all women the right to vote, so the struggle continued for decades?
Make Women Take the Stage a part of your curriculum. This multi-ethnic virtual concert and rally is designed to engage all people in the democratic process. Through entertainment, education and activation, the program drives home the importance of voting by and for women.
The focus of Women Take the Stage is to achieve historic representation in the November election. After that, we'd like to see activated young minds continue to be fired up about women's equality. One great way to do this is to watch the short films produced by UNLADYLIKE2020, featuring unsung women who changed America.
