Debating Suffrage 1876–1900

In the third volume of History of Woman Suffrage, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Matilda Joslyn Gage documented the growth of the Woman Suffrage movement from the centennial of the United States until 1885. This completed the original scope of work for History of Woman Suffrage. However, the debate on women's voting rights did not end in 1885. In 1902 a new editorial team of Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper added a fourth volume chonicling national and state suffrage conventions held between 1883–1900.
