Farm Women, Solidarity, and "The Suffrage Messenger": Nebraska Suffrage Activism on the Plains, 1915-1917
Heider, Carmen
Great Plains Quarterly, v32 n2 p113-130 Spr 2012
In 1914 Nebraska men once again voted against the amendment that would have granted full suffrage to Nebraska women. This article focuses on the three years immediately after that defeat. It explores the remaining seventeen issues of the "Suffrage Messenger" and asks the following question: how did the suffrage newspaper portray and appeal to farm women in the Great Plains? Nebraska suffragists at this point recognized that farm women were vital to their cause, even though they had not previously focused their work on this particular demographic. This question is rooted in and shaped by two areas of scholarship: suffrage newspapers and the Nebraska woman suffrage movement.
