Fight For Womens Suffrage

If only we could go back while our grandmother's were still alive to ask them their thoughts on the Women's Suffrage movement in America! Did they participate or following with an intense and passionate feeling for "Rights of All Women?"

We found this list of Suffrage and the Women Behind It that dates back to the Session of National Woman's Suffrage Association in Chicago, 1880. The campaign for women's suffrage began in the decades before the civil War, though. It gained momentum in the 1850's, led by abolitionist activists such as Lucy Stone, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul.
