Votes for Hawaii

One hundred years ago this month, the 19th Amendment was ratified into the U.S. Constitution. It’s widely remembered as the moment American women gained the right to vote, but history tells a more complex story. For millions of Indigenous Americans living in far-flung territories, the 19th Amendment afforded some rights but fell well short of what was promised. This time on Sidedoor, learn how women’s suffrage came to Hawai‘i—and what was taken from Hawaiians to get there.
