Equality at the Ballot Box: Votes for Women on the Northern Great Plains. Edited by Lori Ann Lahlum and Molly R Rozum.
On December 10, 1869, the governor of Wyoming Territory signed the first full woman suffrage bill in the history of the United States. Suffragists in neighboring territories of Montana and Dakota believed their prospects were similarly bright. Over the next twenty years efforts to secure the votes for women met only limited success. The fight for woman suffrage on the Northern Great Plains would take another three decades.
In Equality at the Ballot Box, editors Lori Ann Lahlum and Molly P. Rozum have compiled a set of original essays that illuminate key aspects of the movement.
