Product Description
This gripping NO PREP primary source reading will help your students discover the extremes Suffragists endured to achieve voting rights for women.

"We have been in solitary for five weeks. There is nothing to tell but that the days go by somehow. I have felt quite feeble the last few days, so that I could hardly get my hair brushed, my arms ached so…My fainting probably means nothing except that I am not strong after these weeks."

This captivating passage will help students understand the sacrifices made during the fight to attain voting rights for women. The passage provides a brief summary of the Nation Women's Party and its efforts, along with diary entries from a NWP member that was jailed for picketing the White House. While in jail the NWP members stage a hunger strike and the prison authorities respond be force feeding the women. The diary passage details the grueling hardships the women face while in jail. A corresponding worksheet contains multiple choice and short answer questions.
