The suffrage movement started in the early to mid 1800's by pioneers Susan B. Anthony (Massachusetts), Elizabeth Cody (New York), Lucy Stone (Massachusetts). Later, Ida Harper (Indiana) became a vocal voice in the movement and Josephine Brawley-Hughes (Pennsylvania) brought the issue out West to Nevada where her husband and later her son became governors of that state. Both husband and son made woman's rights a major issue. Although the beginnings started in the Northeast, it was in the western territories where woman gained a lot during the 1890's.
