Suffrage in Sixty Seconds
Various Times, Daily

On July 28th, 1919, Arkansas became the twelfth state to ratify the nineteenth amendment, giving American women the right to vote. Suffrage in Sixty Seconds celebrates the centennial of Arkansas’s ratification and recounts the long journey to women’s suffrage and the state’s role in that journey.

Suffrage in Sixty Seconds is a production of the Arkansas Women's Suffrage Centennial Commemoration Committee and KUAR. It's written and hosted by Dr. Sharon Silzell, Assistant Professor of History at the University of Arkansas at Monticello.
