Women voters and the 1920 election

The first presidential election women were allowed to vote in was in 1920, after passage of the 19th amendment.

Both parties attempted to woo women voters.

We have included a copy of Jay Darling’s 1920 cartoon, along with questions and answers, that shows the courting that occurred.

For more resources on the 1920s check out our PowerPoint and simulation games:

Seneca Falls Convention, 1848

Seneca Falls

The Seneca Falls Convention, attended by about 300 people, addressed the status of women at the time.

Many cite this event as the beginning of the women’s suffrage movement.

We have included a copy of the Declaration of Rights and Sentiments along with questions and answers.
