Change It!

Shaping Women's Rights in America.

Exciting interactive program for grades 4 - 12

What: 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 to protest for rights denied to women in the United States during the nineteenth century. Secondary level students will apply the historical resource material to contemporary issues.

Where: The Susan B. Anthony House is located at 17 Madison Street, Rochester, New York.  This was Miss Anthony’s home from 1866 to 1906, the most politically active period of her life.
