Covers 80 years of the struggle for equal voting rights for women that culminated in the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The coverage starts in 1840, at the World Anti-Slavery Convention in London, where abolitionists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott were refused seats on the floor by male abolitionists because of their gender, leading to the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention. Includes newspapers that had some overlap between the temperance and women's rights movements, as well as an anti-suffrage paper (The Lily 1849-1856, National Citizen and Ballot Box 1878-1881, The Revolution 1868-1872, The New Citizen 1909-1912, The Western Woman Voter 1911-1913, and The Remonstrance 1890-1913).
