This fun and educational game is a wonderful way for little dreamers to learn about and be inspired by inspiring female role models. Each of the role models featured is represented by two cards. The first card has a beautifully illustrated childhood image of the subject on the front, and details of their early life on the back. The second card has an image of the person as an adult, with different facts, their famous achievements and insights on her personal life on the back.
As a memory game, players can find pairs as they turn over the facing-down cards. As a storytelling memory game, players can begin a story using any card, each player repeating the story and adding a new character with each turn, remembering the elements. As a solo game a player can look for matches, or use the stories as prompts. This game makes a lovely gift for inquisitive young minds.
In 1915, American women were pushing for equal rights, particularly the right to vote in national elections. They lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to achieve what many Americans considered a radical change of the Constitution. Finally, Congress passed on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment, which guarantees all American women the right to vote. The Nineteenth Amendment Joint Resolution of Congress and many other records related to women’s equal rights are preserved and protected in the National Archives.
