Texas Women and The Vote

The nationwide fight for woman suffrage reached a milestone with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, the federal amendment that addressed women's right to vote.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Lone Star State's ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, TSHA is proud to release the eBook, Texas Women and the Vote.

Inside the eBook, you will discover more about the women who played a crucial role in woman suffrage and the longer voting rights movement, including:

  • Minnie Fisher Cunningham, leader of the Texas Equal Suffrage Association and founding member of the League of Women Voters
  • Juanita Craft, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People leader and civic reformer
  • María Ninfa Rodríguez Laurenzo, founder of Ninfa's restaurants and education, health, and voting rights advocate
