This year marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote. Women suffragists understood the power of print media and photographs in their campaign. Your students can learn more about how suffragists represented themselves by creating a change-making suffragist zine, a self-published booklet. Challenge them to use the blank template provided to create an extra zine on a topic of their choosing.
