Orientation to When Women Lost the Vote Online Exhibit and Teacher Resources (Virtual)January 7, 2021 from 7-8:30 p.m.
The Museum’s groundbreaking exhibit, When Women Lost the Vote: A Revolutionary Story, 1776-1807, is coming soon online! This virtual exhibit uses primary source documents, original artifacts, and an engaging interactive document viewer to explore the little-known period in American history when some women — and people of African descent — exercised the right to vote in New Jersey. Join members of the Museum’s Education team as we introduce you to this virtual exhibit and its accompanying resources for students and teachers. Together we’ll investigate this fascinating story and consider what it can teach students about the significance of voting in Revolutionary America, and the lessons it can teach about preserving access to that right today.
Check back to our Professional Development Workshop page for future workshops exploring our newest exhibit, When Women Lost the Vote: A Revolutionary Story, 1776-1807.
Bank of America and Comcast NBC Universal are presenting sponsors of When Women Lost the Vote, with additional support provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, and a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
