Suffrage In South Dakota

Aug 19, 2020

During this centennial year of ratification of the 19th Amendment, SDPB is telling the history of suffrage in South Dakota. The right for women’s voices to be heard in the public square and at the ballot box changed nearly every aspect of American life and American history forever. Throughout the year, we’ve welcomed historians and vanguards to talk about the journey to suffrage and its impact right here at home.

South Dakota's male voters rejected woman suffrage proposals in five elections between 1889 and 1918. But local and national suffrage activists kept the issue alive and managed to get another measure on the 1918 ballot. This time was different. Molly Rozum, Ph.D. is an associate professor of history at the University of South Dakota and joins us today.
