Dear Educator,

With the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, Maps101 is taking a look at women, including biographies of women—some well-known and others that need to be discovered—and events regarding women’s rights, such as suffrage and the recent Court decision. Maps101 is your resource for whatever happened in the past or is happening in the world today. We hope you discover all you have available to you with your Maps101 subscription through these GeoJournal weekly updates.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that unnecessarily restrictive state regulation of abortions is unconstitutional, in the case known as Roe v. Wade. Then, on June 24, 2022, the contemporary Supreme Court overturned that decision, leaving abortion rights up to the states. This GNN article explores this pivotal decision, both in 1973 and what it means today.

An early issue women undertook in the United States was to obtain the right to vote. When the country was founded, women dd not have the right to vote, or have suffrage. A growing women’s rights movement in Europe inspired Elizabeth Cady Stanton and others to organize a convention at Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848, to address this inequality. The Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed in 1919—it took nearly 70 years of work before womenhad the right to vote! Black women were guaranteed the right to vote, along with Black men, through the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Today, more women tend to vote than men. Learn all about the fight for women’s suffrage in this GNN article.
