eeBoo's Votes for Women 500 Piece Puzzle celebrates great people who contributed to the Suffrage Movement. These brave individuals fought to give women and people of color the right to vote. All men and women are created equal and deserve to be heard. Remember to vote and exercise the right these women and men fought so hard for.
Monica Garwood (@monicagarwood) is the San Francisco-based illustrator of our Votes for Women puzzle and flashcards! Monica is inspired by Frida Kahlo and Joan Brown, two female painters who “created beautiful, meaningful work in an industry that was mostly a man’s world.” As an illustrator, she loved learning about Nina E. Allendar, featured in Votes for Women puzzle, who drew strong, powerful women in the suffrage movement.
I thoroughly enjoyed building "Votes for Women". I learned so much from the insert summary of those chosen to grace the image. I was motivated to learn more about these pioneers in the field of women's suffrage so I Googled them. I particularly enjoyed reading about Katharine Martha Houghton Hepburn. She was the mother of Katharine Hepburn which explains so much. Ms. Hepburn has been a favorite of mine and I was fascinated to learn that her niece, Katharine Houghton, played her daughter Joey in the movie, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner". That film was also a ground breaking boundary pushing endeavor to draw attention to intolerance. I am grateful to the generations of women (and many notable men) who continue to fight the good fight for freedom and justice for all. Thank you for this amazing puzzle. Five stars!
This was fabulous - not only the challenge of the puzzle but the booklet that tells about each person on the puzzle. I learned so much. And we are passing it around a group of women - when one completes it they sign the box and give it to another woman. Who knows how far it will go!
I love that this puzzle is just 500 pieces. It was easy to complete in an afternoon. I really enjoyed it. Again, another high quality eeboo puzzle that is well made. Pieces fit together nicely and are easy to distinguish.
This puzzle provided a way to help teach two nine year olds about women and voting. The poster with individual’s mini bios was great. I highly recommend this puzzle.
