The first women to vote

Who were the first women to vote in the United States?

Almost a thousand years ago, women in the Haudenosaunee Confederacy helped select the chiefs who governed their council, says scholar Sally Roesch Wagner.

These were women in the Mohawk, Oneida and other tribes that lived around the Great Lakes, and they helped decide matters of war and peace.

It’s time to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. The official day is August 26, but we’re going to begin now testing your knowledge of the history of women’s suffrage.
