From Suffrage to Sex: Women's Activism in Making America

Open Enrollment Teacher Workshop
From: 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
$ 15.00
How do today’s groundbreaking women build on the legacies of our trailblazing sisters from the past? Using the celebrated PBS film and platform as a backdrop, we will trace the evolution of women’s activism over the past 100 years through the lives and work of Elizabeth Cady Stanton; Margaret Sanger; Sara Weddington, the attorney who argued Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court; and Faye Wattleton, former president of Planned Parenthood America. Join noted activist and historian Amy Richards and the N-YHS as we bring history forward, connecting the past, present, and future.
