Women's History

Hi, I am a 15 year old student in Canada. I am doing a history news report project on the 1920's.

I have to write three news articles, one of them is on women's rights, the second one is on economy and labor issues, and the third one is on native rights. I was wondering if you could give me as much information on them as you can. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Leyda

 

Leyda,

A few suggestions on where/how to research further:

1.) Women's rights -- the two biggest things to happen in the 1920s were women winning the right to vote and Alice Paul introducing the Equal Rights Amendment. Both gestures are key to women's rights.

2.) On Labor Issues -- Rose Schneiderman among others were key to this issue, including protecting undocumented workers as well as those trapped in low wage jobs with little regulation, a reaction to the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire among other trials.

3.) Native American -- you should reference the work of Sally Roesch Wagner to better assess what was specifically happening at that time.

I hope these suggestions lead you to further research. Good luck.
