How Wisconsin women won the ballot (1921)


On June 10, 1919, the Wisconsin Legislature passed a resolution ratifying the Federal Constitutional amendment abolishing sex as a qualification of voters. Theodora Youmans, who had been president of the Wisconsin Women's Suffrage Association 1913-1919, after Olympia Brown, recounts early events in that struggle(1846-1911) as an historian and later events (1912-1919) as an active participant.
