Women’s Early Suffrage in the West Focus of Next ‘Seeking Suffrage’ Lecture

Public presentations that mark the century since ratification of the 19th Amendment – granting women the right to vote – continue this month as part of a lecture series hosted by the University of Idaho, Latah County Historical Society and Moscow League of Women Voters. The Seeking Suffrage Lecture Series, with public presentations at U of I and in Moscow, continues at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre at 508 S. Main St. Historian Rebecca Mead will discuss “How the Vote Was Won: Women’s Suffrage in the U.S. West.” She will examine the factors that resulted in nearly all western women being granted the right to vote by 1914, while few women in the eastern United States voted until after the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920.
