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.
