Don’t Forget the Ladies, John

The struggle for equal rights for women is examined in this eighth grade lesson.  Eighth grade students brainstorm to create a list of female historical figures and then add to that list throughout the lesson.  At the end students gain an appreciation for women who worked to establish equal rights from the time of the writing of the Declaration of Independence to the present.
