Votes for Women Comes to Sioux City:
The 1916 Woman Suffrage Referendum

2 p.m. at the Sioux City Public Museum
Presented by Kitty Green, assistant professor of history at Morningside College, this study in Sioux City history uncovers the pro-suffrage campaign activities of local organizations, describes the responses of local women anti-suffragists to the campaign, and explains the relationship of suffrage to prohibition. Even though the Sioux City advocates of woman suffrage waged an exciting, controversial, optimist, and competent campaign in Sioux City in 1916, they could not disassociate themselves from the liquor question, could not overcome the force of anti-suffragists arguments, and could not prevent
or find a remedy for voter fraud.
