Crusade for the Vote

Every election cycle I’m always awed by the fact that I have the right to vote. 100 years ago that wouldn’t have been the case. I took advantage of early voting in my area this year in order to make sure I could pay those amazing suffragists back for all their hard work in securing my right to vote.

This siteĀ is brought to you by the National Women’s History Museum and covers the history of the woman’s suffrage movement from its start in the 18th century until women were granted the right to v0te in 1920 with the passing of the 19th amendment.

In my work at the Wisconsin Historical Society, I dealt with a lot of papers from women who were a part of this movement. I was really lucky to get to digitize some of Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s letters, correspondence between different organizations working together to campaign for the right to vote, and images from the movement in Wisconsin. I was really thrilled to find this site, because not only does it offer historical primary sources, but it also educational resources!

I recommend scrolling down the main page and clicking into the section that strikes your fancy. I started my visit by checking out the timeline beneath the three featured sections – History of Woman Suffrage, Educational Resources, Primary Sources – because I wanted to see what moments in the history of the movement that they pulled out to feature.

This is a really great site that looks at the history of Woman’s Suggrage. Go check it out for yourself today!
