Edith Wilmans on her Campaign Tour 

Inspired by the real Edith Wilmans

 

On this important anniversary of women’s suffrage, Pollyanna invites our young patrons to celebrate Texas women who left their mark on our collective political history.  Great for Texas History as well as U.S. History teaching and learning – grades 4 and 5.

 

The year is 1926 and two women are running for Texas governor: Miriam "Ma" Ferguson and Edith Wilmans. You're invited to attend a rally where you'll meet Edith Wilmans. As the first woman elected to the Texas State Legislature, Edith has a lot to say about politics and women's suffrage. Learn about the history of women voting in Texas, important issues in the 1920's (many similar to important issues 100 years later), and why political representation matters.

 

Come prepared to share what issues are important to you -- Edith wants to hear them! 

 

(Engagement with students includes: photo timelines documenting Texas Women's suffrage, discuss historical figures, open questions for Edith Wilmans, brainstorming what's important to the students, and drafting a letter to be sent to contemporary politicians)
