Women's Votes, Women's Voices (Paperback)

The Campaign for Equal Rights in Washington
Shanna Stevenson

In 1910, suffragettes finally persuaded Washington men to ratify a state constitutional amendment permanently granting voting rights for women, only the fifth state to do so. Their success revitalized the national movement, inspiring activists struggling toward passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. With full-color illustrations throughout, Women's Votes, Women's Voices provides a comprehensive summary of the Washington women's suffrage movement and presents vignettes on many of the state's most active leaders, such as May Arkwright Hutton and Emma Smith DeVoe.
