Suffragists at Ohio Statehouse photograph
Description: Although Ohio women's suffrage supporters successfully petitioned to put women's suffrage on the 1912 ballot, the amendment was defeated in the September election. Despite the defeat, Ohio's suffrage activists continued to campaign for women's right to vote. This 3.5" by 5.5" (8.89 by 13.97cm) image depicts representatives of county suffrage organizations demonstrating on the steps of the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus on July 30,1914. Not until June 16, 1919 did Ohio ratify the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and extend to women the right to vote. View on Ohio Memory.
