Women's Suffrage in the Americas Project


Welcome to Women’s Suffrage in the Americas, a collaborative research project that aims to answer the question, “How did women obtain the vote in the Americas?” Our goal is to generate a theoretical model that will identify both constants and variables across the hemisphere, as well as classify various models to explain how, when, and why suffrage was extended to women in each case.


Women's Suffrage in the Americas has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
