Working to Give Women the Right to Vote in North Carolina, 1920

Our State magazine features an account of the North Carolina suffragettes' campaign. You can see additional photos and read the complete story at: Here is a photo of some of the people who worked for approval in 1920. The legislature denied the right of women to vote, but other states were in favor so the 19th Amendment was ratified and all women got the right to vote. This photo, which was used with the article in Our State magazine, came from the North Carolina State Archives in Raleigh.
