Women Winning Suffrage in Wisconsin

In the home of Progressivism, as described by a suffragist after defeat as late as 1912, “the last thing a man becomes progressive about is the activities of his wife.” From statehood to the state’s ratification of the 19th Amendment, nowhere was “the struggle” fought for so long. While women elsewhere sang suffrage hymns, women in the Badger State marched to a “fight song” with a familiar tune but in their own words–lyrics too long forgotten until now.
