This prompted them to form another association called the National Woman Suffrage Association in 1869. She also wrote and edited for the association's newspaper The Revolution . Suffrage for Women All these women were united by a common theme of suffrage for women. They actively advocated for grating women all over the country. By 1896 women had gained full suffrage in only three states 9 . Wyoming granted the women the right to vote in 1869. Colorado granted suffrage after winning a referendum in 1893. Utah also adopted the suffrage in 1870, but it was pulled down in 1880 by the Congress. When Utah entered the Union in 1896 as a state it re- introduced complete women suffrage in its new constitution as a state, thus making women vote in the McKinley – Bryan election contest for the presidency. Many women had partial suffrage mainly in school-related issues, local offices and bond matters. Such issues, however, did not produce the same level of interest as the presidential or congressional elections. Thus, it explained partly why women registered to vote in small numbers, however, anti-suffragists used this to justify that women were not interested in voting.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
