Today we talked about Suffrage. We looked at the history of the Suffrage Movement and saw that it started with women fighting for the abolition of slavery. We talked about how the effectiveness of that movement gave women confidence to fight against alcoholism (leading to prohibition) before moving the battle to Suffrage. Then we looked at how people got around prohibition including Speak-Easys, Wine Bricks, and the rum runners (which would become NASCAR!)
You have no homework tonight. Your rough draft is due Thursday!
