At the heart of the suffrage movement was a shared belief that women deserved to be full owners of their own citizenship and have the right to exercise that citizenship at the ballot box. But the suffragists agreed on little else.
From the beginning, the suffrage movement was splintered into different organizations that advocated different courses of action, and often these organizations were in direct conflict.
In this episode of “Prologued,” we talk about the women who led the charge for suffrage, their successful advocating for the 19th amendment and who they left behind along the way.
