It's hard to believe that women didn't have the right to vote until 1920, harder to believe what they had to go through to get it, and even harder to believe that in some countries, women still don't have the right. In the United States, activists like Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton convened and campaigned for years before their voices were heard. Anthony was even arrested for illegally voting! Look through some of these sites that the HomeworkSpot editors have found, and you will undoubtedly be shocked and inspired by what you learn.
