Crowdsourcing Biographical Sketches of Woman Suffragists

The online journal and database, WOMEN AND SOCIAL MOVEMENTS IN THE UNITED STATES, is engaged in crowdsourcing to create a new Online Biographical Dictionary of the Woman Suffrage Movement in the U.S.  As part of this broad project, we will be gathering biographical sketches of 2500 suffrage supporters of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) between 1900 and 1920.  Our goal is to prepare this Online Biographical Dictionary in time for the 100th anniversary in 2020 of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment that gave women in the U.S. the vote.
