Women’s Suffrage in Texas
The Fight for Voting Rights in the Lone Star State
A special online exhibit
Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote with our new online exhibit. Texas was the ninth state in the U.S. and the first state in the South to ratify the amendment. By August 18, 1920, 36 states (including Texas) had approved the amendment and it became part of the United States Constitution. This exhibit focuses on the suffrage movement in Dallas, Texas – on a local, state and national level.
