The Montana Suffrage Story & a Great Women’s History Website (Martha Kohl)

Standard

We know it’s the hundredth birthday of women’s suffrage in Montana. How did that victory actually come about?

Martha Kohl and producer Beth Judy delve into the details of the huge political effort that was required. Was it all about Jeannette Rankin? Where in the state did suffrage pass and where did it not? Did it succeed by a landslide? (No!) What strategies did suffragists use?

Kohl, with the Montana Historical Society, also talks about the Society’s great website, Women’s History Matters. It celebrates the history of all Montana women, sensitive to the fact that Indian women didn’t win voting rights in 1914–only later. This program aired Apr. 22, 2014.
