Whatever your political beliefs, there’s no doubt history was made in July when Hillary Rodham Clinton became the first woman to accept a major party’s presidential nomination.

Of course, in a country where women couldn’t even vote until 1920 and where they still earn 79 cents for every dollar that a man brings home, there’s still plenty of work to do. That, however, doesn’t change the important precedent set by Clinton’s nomination: It’s no longer unfathomable to believe a woman can become president.

So regardless of how you may be voting this November, let’s seize the moment to educate our children about American women’s long history fighting for the right to vote, holding office and leading our country. The following books and movies will help get that conversation going.
