Women Suffragette Coloring Pages

We invite you to download and color these pages, created by our PAAC members, in tribute to the brave, dedicated women who sacrificed so much to ensure we can all vote today. As you embellish these pages, please take a moment to reflect on the courage and commitment of these women. Consider what you can do to honor them and bring change to your world.

 

Here’s a brief introduction to the suffragette movement. We hope you’ll be inspired to do more research on your own:

 

"The women’s suffrage movement was a decades-long fight to win the right to vote for women in the United States. It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right, and the campaign was not easy: Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. But on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising all American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserve all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.” (Read the rest of this article at https://www.history.com/topics/womens-history/the-fight-for-womens-suffrage.)
