April Young Bennett talks to kids about the Nineteenth Amendment: why it matters, and why it wasn’t the end of the struggle.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, the children’s newspaper News-O-Matic interviewed April Young Bennett about how it was won, why it mattered, and why more steps were needed before every woman could vote.

The article is a great resource for talking to kids about the suffrage centennial. It includes audio narration, a terrific slide show and some great videos. Check it out:
