Seeking Suffragist Descendants

Do you have a suffragist in your family tree?

We want to hear all about her!

TPSM is gathering family stories, histories, memorabilia, and other treasures related to the struggle to win all women the right to vote. Our goal is to educate the public and appropriately honor these brave women and we need your help.

We would be especially delighted to hear from you if you are descended from or otherwise related to any of the women (named below) who were imprisoned at the Occoquan Workhouse in Lorton, Va., or in Washington, D.C. in 1917.

Please contact us by email at descendants@suffragistmemorial.org and tell us your ancestor’s story.
