From the first Indiana Woman’s Rights Convention held in Dublin, Indiana, in 1851 to the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, Hoosier women fought hard for more than 70 years to gain the right to vote. Securing the Vote: Women’s Suffrage in Indiana explores how women all across Indiana passionately labored for suffrage through countless meetings, campaigns and other grassroots efforts. Despite many defeats and setbacks, they persisted towards the goal of full citizenship and the power to make change through voting.

Securing the Vote: Women’s Suffrage in Indiana is a project of the Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial, catalyzed by Indiana Humanities, the Indianapolis Propylaeum, the Indiana Historical Society and the Indiana Historical Bureau, with support from Lilly Endowment Inc.
