This book shows students how to find, evaluate, organize and use evidence on key topics about the changing role of women since 1900. There are ideas for research topics, such as the role of the suffragettes, attempts to pass an Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution, women in sports, and the challenges of combining careers and motherhood. There's advice on skimming and scanning, identifying bias in sources, and interpreting photographs. A wide range of graphic organizers and completed examples are provided.
