Women Suffrage Movement in Texas

Recommended Posts

The adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920 represented a huge victory for American women by securing their inalienable right to vote.  Texas was the first state in the South to ratify this hard-fought-for change.     

 

Learn more about the champions for Texas women’s suffrage, political strategies, anti-suffrage sentiments, efforts to amend the Texas Constitution, primary suffrage, and, finally, the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment with Melissa Prycer at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at the Allen Public Library.

Melissa Prycer is the president and executive director at Dallas Heritage Village.  She holds a master’s degree in public history from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina.   Prior to joining Dallas Heritage Village, she worked as an intern at several museums in Dallas.

This program is sponsored by the Allen Public Library, located at 300 N. Allen Drive. Call 214-509-44911 for additional information.
