On this night in 1917, dozens of suffragists, who had been arrested for protesting in front of the White House, were beaten and tortured during what became known as the "Night of Terror" when the guards were ordered to "teach the women a lesson." In our blog post, you can read their harrowing story and how it galvanized support for women's suffrage across the U.S. during the final push for the passage of the 19th Amendment.

For an excellent introduction to the Women's Suffrage Movement for kids, we highly recommend "Elizabeth Started All The Trouble" for ages 6 to 9 at https://www.amightygirl.com/elizabeth-started-all-the-trouble

For older kids, there are two new books to the long and challenging fight for women's suffrage in the US: "Roses and Radicals" for ages 10 and up (https://www.amightygirl.com/roses-and-radicals) and "Votes for Women!" for teens and adults, ages 13 and up (https://www.amightygirl.com/votes-for-women)

For a fascinating book for adult readers about the final battle for the 19th Amendment, we also recommend "The Woman's Hour" at https://www.amightygirl.com/the-woman-s-hour

For more books to teach children and teens about the heroic women of the Suffrage Movement, visit our blog post, “How Women Won the Vote: Teaching Kids About the U.S. Suffrage Movement, ” at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=11827

And, for an excellent depiction of the tireless work of suffragists Lucy Burns and Alice Paul who helped lead the final push for the vote, we highly recommend the film "Iron Jawed Angels" for ages 13 and up at https://www.amightygirl.com/iron-jawed-angels
