Hard One, Not Done


A commemoration of the 100-Year Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment from an Iowa Perspective


An online curriculum focusing on the 19th Amendment will be posted on the 19th Amendment Centennial Commemoration website being hosted by the University of Northern Iowa. The curriculum will offer six teacher-directed lessons along with accompanying supplemental materials. Lessons will be tailored for 9-12 grade students in history or other interested classes. Historical content will be included along with references to the League’s connection to the suffrage movement. The lessons will be vetted this spring in select schools. The full-scale curriculum will be ready to launch by the 2019-20 school year.

Lead Organizer(s): Sue Johannsen, League of Women Voters of Muscatine County, Judy Dirks, League of Women Voters of Metro Des Moines and Nancy L. Porter, League of Women Voters, Iowa City
