“Wake Up, Nevada!”

After Washington State passed suffrage in 1910, six more western states followed, and victory in the west seemed all but won. In a 1914 article in Out West magazine, Carrie Chapman Catt inquired, “Today, Nevada stands alone among her neighbors, a black spot on the suffrage map of the West. Is she going to redeem herself?” Suffragists successfully organized in more remote areas of the state, avoiding urban centers with saloons, and the Nevada state referendum passed in November 1914.
