What impact did the early Women's Suffrage movement have on Ulysses S. Grant's presidency and how did federal legislation enacted during this time affect the future of women's rights in the United States?
Through the study of primary source documents, students who take part in this presentation will learn about the roles of Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Victoria Woodhull in shaping the early women's suffrage movement. Furthermore, students will take away a better understanding of Ulysses S. Grant's role in the movement and his efforts to secure equal rights for all.
