Women's Activism and Social Change

For centuries, women in the United States have used activism to voice their concerns about society and secure their rights as citizens. This video—adapted from the New-York Historical Society’ Women & the American Story curriculum—explores the history of American women’s activism and overviews some of the many causes women took up and the strategies they used to make their voices heard.

The video was produced by the New-York Historical Society’s Teen Leaders interns in collaboration with the Untold project.
