National Susan B. Anthony House and Museum Programs
Tour and Program: Change It! Shaping Women’s Rights in America
Using Susan B. Anthony and the 19th century women’s rights movement as a backdrop, students will learn about different methods of reform by touring her National Historic Landmark home and participating in an interactive, hands-on workshop. They will gain access to unique primary source materials, and then use these historical resources to help stage their very own mock demonstration.
