 Happy 100th anniversary, women voters of Texas!

On March 26, 1918, Governor William Hobby signed the bill giving women the right to vote in the Texas primaries.

Immediately afterward, a citizenship school was organized to inform the new voters how to register and vote.

Eight quite different community groups led the effort to register and educate women to vote for the first time in Texas.

In 17 days, they registered an estimated 386,000 women to vote that historic election!
