Let Ohio Women Vote


Let Ohio Women Vote tells the story of the long fight for women’s suffrage in our state – a fight which created unpredictable alliances as well as surprising connections to national events. The documentary will premiere in the fall of 2021.

March is Women’s History Month, so we’ve created this collection of short videos to highlight some of the heroines — and antis — of the women’s suffrage story in southwest Ohio.

Special thanks to League of Women Voters of Greater Dayton Area, Cincinnati Area, and the US, and the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center for helping us bring these local stories to light.
