Bio/Contact

@DailySuffragist posts an accessible story on social media every day, episodically telling the story of women's century-plus struggle for full citizenship. The project began on August 26, 2019, and continues today.

Most posts are written by Rachel B. Tiven, a lawyer and civil rights activist who always imagined doing something grand to mark the centennial of the 19th Amendment. She was 10 years old when she began pondering how women won the vote if they couldn’t vote to change the law. This project is her attempt to find out.

In addition to the Twitter posts captured here, @DailySuffragist is published on Facebook and Instagram. Ida B. Wells’ image is used as an avatar with the permission of Michelle Duster, Ida’s great-granddaughter.
