From the Capitol to Main Street: The Landscape of the Woman Suffrage Movement in South Dakota

In “From the Capitol to Main Street: The Landscape of the Woman Suffrage Movement in South Dakota,” Elizabeth J. Almlie focuses on the courthouses, opera halls, churches, and other buildings that hosted speeches and debates on women’s right to vote in the late 1800s and early 1900s. By looking at the people and places important to the decades-long suffrage campaign, Almlie highlights how South Dakotans and national figures participated in this social movement. Almlie is a historic preservation specialist with the State Historic Preservation Office of the South Dakota State Historical Society.
