Woman Suffrage

Beginning in the mid-19th century, several generations of woman suffrage supporters lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to achieve what many Americans considered a radical change in the United States Constitution. Suffragists used tactics such as parades, silent vigils, and hunger strikes. The records of the National Archives and Records Administration reveal much of this struggle.

This collection was compiled by the United States National Archives and Records Administration, and draws primarily from its nationwide holdings.
