Women's Suffrage Delegation on the steps of the State Capitol with Governor Charles Brough
The women's suffrage movement in Arkansas began fairly early with the formation of women's suffrage clubs after the Civil War. The earliest suffrage law to be proposed in Arkansas was in 1868. In 1917, Arkansas passed a bill allowing women to vote in primary elections. The rally celebrated the passage of the bill. Charles Brough served as the 25th Governor of Arkansas from 1917 until 1921. He supported the passage of the bill.
