Take a closer look at some of the Smithsonian's collection of "objection and answer" banners that displayed arguments for and against women's suffrage. Part of an OurStory module entitled Winning the Vote for Women, this activity includes a worksheet that encourages discussion of the women's suffrage movement along with images of the banners themselves. OurStory is designed to help children and adults enjoy exploring history together through the use of children's literature, everyday objects, and hands-on activities.
