Votes for women!

IT TOOK women generations to achieve the goal of being allowed to vote in the United States. It required enormous courage, patience, and determination on the part of visionary leaders and millions of their committed followers. The idea of women having a say in politics raised many voices in protest and scorn at first. Gradually, though, through successes and setbacks, the dream came true. We thought you might enjoy playing this game, based on the journey of "suffragists" from 1848 to 1920.
