Today we'll wrap up our work with primary documents dealing with the movement toward women's suffrage. For each of the documents, we'll discuss what you think the message was, who the intended audience was, and what, if any, effect it would have on those who came across it. 

After our discussions, it's your turn:
  1. Choose a particular point of view on the topic that would have existed at the time (for or against, or somewhere in between) NOTE: It doesn't have to be your true opinion.
  2. Create a document that illustrates and advocates your chosen position (drawing, cartoon, letter, speech, poster, etc.)
  3. Be creative, but try to keep your work within the ideas that might have existed at the time.
