Joanne L. Goodwin (History) co-edited the Nevada Historical Society Quarterly's special issue on Nevada's woman suffrage campaigns. Published early this fall, the issue recognizes the centennial of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment (1920) which enabled a majority of U.S. women who were citizens (but not all) to vote. It also brings together the most recent scholarship on woman suffrage in the state. Goodwin's article "Mapping Nevada's Suffrage Campaigns" explores suffrage activities from 1870 through 1920 using digital mapping software to demonstrate the length and breadth of the state's campaigns.
