Research Tools: Towson University Partners with National Park Service to Map the Women’s Suffrage Movement
From Towson University:
A new tool from the National Park Service (NPS) that sheds light on the people and places at the heart of the U.S. suffrage movement will launch on Aug. 18—the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.
The Suffragist Stories Project, created by the NPS in collaboration with Towson University and its Center for GIS…
Researchers, including TU undergraduate students, combed through letters and documents to network relationships between well-known suffragists like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton and regional or local participants or allies. They also tied the figures to historic sites and homes, often part of the national park system.
