Transcript This day in herstory... After 50-year effort, Texas women vote March 26, 1918, Gov. William Hobby signed the bill giving Texas women the vote at primary elections and in nominating conventions. 300,000 women registered to vote in the next gubernatorial primary, helping defeat Hobby's opponent, Jim Ferguson. "These women were among the first to register to vote in Texas in the culmination of a 50-year long struggle for suffrage. The first suffrage resolution, presented at a state constitution convention in 1868 by T. H. Mundine of Burleson County, was rejected. Organized agitation began in 1893, when forty-eight Dallas women formed the Texas Equal Rights Association. In 1896 the Association dissolved due to a quarrel over whether to have Susan B. Anthony speak in Texas. The Finnigan sisters of Houston, Annette, Elizabeth, and Katherine, revived the movement in 1903, but with their departure from Texas in 1905 the movement again died. Local societies were organized in Austin in 1908 and in San Antonio in 1912, and by 1913 enough interest had again been generated to form a state suffrage association. Texas women won the right to vote in the state primary in March 1918, and with the ratification of the 19th Amendment in June of 1919, they gained full suffrage. After suffrage, which had been the focus of women reformers for twenty- five years, was won, the reform groups began to disintegrate. An organized, effective women's lobby continued to work in the Texas Legislature until 1925, but the Jieyday of women's reform groups was over. No issue at that time could bring women together as a political group in the way that suffrage had done." (Photo courtesy State Archives.
