Joanne Goodwin (History) had a recent article, "Nevada's Campaigns for Woman Suffrage," published in the journal Western Legal History: The Journal of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Historical Society.  The article is included in a special issue on woman suffrage in the West. The western states were the first in the country to end gender discrimination with voting legislation. Nevada approved the provision in 1914. Next year is the centennial of passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which established voting rights for most, but not all women across the country.
