Celebrating courageous suffragists who made votes for women possible

The South Dakota Historical Society Foundation and State Historical Society took on a project in 2019 to accelerate the preservation of women’s history. As we prepared for the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote, we realized how little women’s history we had preserved.

You can help with the Women’s History Initiative: Donate now and help us commemorate the lives and legacies of South Dakota women.

Her Vote. Her Voice. (HVHV) is a project of the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation. To lead the HVHV initiative, a Delegation was appointed by Governor Kristi Noem to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment.
