Welcome to the Digital Classroom, a free resource from Newseum Education

Primary sources, interactives, videos and lesson plans bring history, journalism and the First Amendment to life for students.

"Women, Their Rights and Nothing Less"

The "Women, Their Rights and Nothing Less" learning module — the title comes from the motto of The Revolution, a pro-suffrage newspaper — investigates the suffragists' pioneering use of the free press and the other First Amendment freedoms. Explore more than 250 primary sources in three interactives to see how and why movement participants dared to challenge the status quo. Then, discover their legacy in contemporary civil rights issues, and build your own case for change today.

Support for "Women, Their Rights and Nothing Less: The First Amendment and the Women's Suffrage Movement" is provided by the American Association of University Women.
