A suffragette is/was an activist in a women's organizations, state or federal government, or an individuals who fought under the banner "Votes for Women," for women to have a constitutionally protected right to vote in free and public elections.

They largely lived in the United States and the United Kingdom, but came from all around the world. Some were active in the battle for women's right to vote as early 1800s; others worked to educate and enroll voters and for voting rights into the late 1900s and beyond.

Men and women, young and old, you may know some of them or perhaps parts of their histories. Some you may never have heard of before, but all deserve to have their stories told.
