The making of a movement

The work of attaining voting rights for women spanned generations. In Minnesota, the movement began when a few women inserted themselves into public debates. It picked up momentum as women formed coalitions to amplify their voices. Once the amendment passed, women doubled down on their work — training new voters and fighting for the many people still denied voting rights. That work continues.
