Arkansas Women and the Right to Vote

Arkansas Women and the Right to Vote The Little Rock Campaigns: 1868-1920 Bernadette Cahill

Women from all over Arkansas-left out of the civil rights granted bythe post-Civil War Reconstruction Amendments-took part in a longstruggle to gain the primary civil right of American citizens: voting. The state's capital city of Little Rock served as the focal point not only for suffrage work in Arkansas, but also for the state's contribution to the nationwide nonviolent campaign for women's suffrage that reached its climax between 1913 and 1920. Based on original research, Cahill's book relates the history of some of those who contributed to this victorious struggle, reveals long-forgotten photographs, includes a map of the locations of meetings and rallies, and provides a list of Arkansas suffragists who helped ensure that discrimination could no longer exclude women from participation in the political life of the state and nation.
