Wisconsin State Journal

Description

In “Female Suffrage in New Jersey”, the author recounts the work of Mrs. Lucy Stone and Mrs. H. B. Blackwell to examine the history of suffrage in the state of New Jersey. Until the state changed its constitution in 1844, “all inhabitants without distinction of either sex or race, possessing fifty pounds worth of property each, and twelve months’ residence in the state,” possessed the right to vote in all elections. In 1847-1848 the state legislature passed a law forbidding women and African Americans from voting.
