Online Biographical Dictionary of the Woman Suffrage Movement in the United States
Tom Dublin, editor
We have now posted three installments of the Online Biographical Dictionary of the Woman Suffrage Movement in the United States containing about 2140 biographical sketches of grassroots women suffragists. We will be adding to it regularly over the next two years and when complete it will include crowdsourced biographical sketches of more than 3,500 women suffrage activists, primarily concentrated in the period 1890-1920. We are aiming for an inclusive collection, including white and black suffragists, mainstream and militant suffragists. The sketches will place women’s suffrage activism within the frame of women’s broader social agenda, before and after the passage of the 19th Amendment in August 1920.
With the cooperation of Alexander Street, your contributions have made it possible to offer this freestanding edition of the Online Biographical Dictionary.
