57 Biographical Sketches of Washington Suffragists Now Available!

Washingtonians answered the call and have completed 57 biographical sketches of Washington women suffragists for the Online Biographical Dictionary of the Woman Suffrage Movement, a crowdsourced biographical database of over 3,500 suffragists nationwide.


This was a grassroots effort with research by students, historians, League of Women Voters members, retired software engineers, professors, research hobbyists and reference librarians.


For your convenience, here is a list of the 57 Washington suffragists who have (or will have) biographies in this database. (Please note that some biographies have not been uploaded yet and are awaiting links)
