The History of the Woman Suffrage Movement in Texas

Women’s suffrage refers to women’s right to vote. It was established during the latter decades of the 19th century and early part of the 20th century. “As women received the right to vote in some places, they began running for public office and gaining positions as school board members, county clerks, state legislators, judges, and, in the case of Jeannette Rankin, as a Member of Congress.”
