Leaders of the Woman Suffrage Movement in Minnesota

Author Heidi Bauer

Minnesota Historical Society Press (March 15, 1999)


The twenty-five women profiled in this volume, as well as countless others from across the state, worked tirelessly for the right to do one thing—vote. It was the privilege for which they struggled. Their efforts were realized with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920, allowing future generations to benefit from their inspiring work.
