The goal is to create a national trail dedicated to documenting the story of women's suffrage, but we have to start on the local level. Please fill out the survey below to help us find the sites where women fought for their right to vote. COMPLETE A SEPARATE SURVEY FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL BUILDING/SITE/HISTORICAL MARKER/MONUMENT.
What differentiates a "building" from a "site"? We consider a building to be a physical structure that has a permanent address; think four walls and a door. A site would be a little different: it might be a parade route or a local park that was used by suffragists to further their cause. It may not have a specific address.
Additionally, the "other categories of use" question asks you to consider how the suffrage movement may have overlapped with other social and political concerns. For example, many suffragists were active in the temperance movement or the abolition movement. If you know of such activity at the site, please address it in this section.
We're also asking you to identify your research sources. If you find valuable information in a local newspaper, please give the name of the article, the name of the newspaper, and the date of publication. Similarly, we ask that for a magazine article that you provide the title of the article, the title of the publication, the date of publication, and the page number. Finally, if you use a book to do research, please provide the title, author, and page number. This is by no means an exhaustive list of possible resources, but just a sampling. At the very least, try to provide a description of the source, the organization responsible for its publication and dispersal, and a date.
Only by working together can we make this suffrage trail a reality. Thank you for your contribution and support!
