The Campaign for Woman Suffrage in Virginia
When the thirty-sixth state ratified the amendment, women gained voting rights across the nation. Virginia suffragists were a part of that victory, despite Virginia's General Assembly refusing to ratify the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920. They marched in parades, rallied at the state capitol, lobbied legislators, and even went to jail. Brent Tarter, Marianne E. Julienne, and Barbara C Batson write this book to recognize the efforts made by Virginia suffragists so their courage will not be forgotten.
