Women's History and Religion of the United States: Crowdsourced Suffragist Project

Overview of the Project

Ms. Serene Williams coordinates SHP's participation in a crowd-sourced suffragist project for the academic database, Women and Social Movements. This will be our fifth year participating. We are one of the only high schools participating as this project is intended for university level students and independent researchers. More details can be found at this link. You can see SHP’s participation at this link. The work will be published in the scholarly database Women & Social Movements in preparation for the centennial of the 19th amendment in 2020.
