Women’s Suffrage Movement Storymap

Through the Suffragist Stories Project in collaboration with the National Park Service, two dozen Towson University faculty members and undergraduate students from several disciplines worked to create a GIS Storymap. The Storymap links documented activists to more than 200 sites with historical significance to the women’s suffrage movement throughout the U.S., many of which function under the auspices of the National Park Service and can be visited today.
