Failure is Impossible
The episode title is a line from a speech Susan B. Anthony gave a few months before she died in 1906; she didn’t live to see the 19th amendment added to the Constitution in 1920. But the 19th amendment wasn’t -- and isn’t -- the end of the voting rights story. Pictured with this episode: Zitkala-Sa, who fought for Native Americans' right to vote after 1920.

Suffragists needed three-fourths of the states on board to get victory for the whole country. But that meant winning over the south, where zero states were in. Pictured with this episode: Carrie Chapman Catt, who came to Nashville to manage the strategy on the ground.

Suffrage in Translation

Truth is of No Color
This is more than a story about women’s rights. It’s a story about civil rights. And women like Ida B. Wells and Mary Church Terrell, our pictured suffragist this week, understood that the suffrage fight was as much about race as it was gender.

Myths & Legends
Susan B. Anthony invented women’s suffrage, right? At least that feels like we were taught in school. The truth is much more complicated: Native American women had rights long before white settlers arrived. And, during the suffrage movement, Anthony actually faced a rival organization run by Lucy Stone (our suffragist pictured with this week’s episode), with different priorities about how suffragists and abolitionists should work together.

The Cult of True Womanhood
To understand what the suffragists were up against, we have to look at why men -- and even some other women -- didn’t want women to have the right to vote at all. For more on the people and stories mentioned in this episode, visit go.nps.gov/suffragepodcasts.
