Biographical Database of Militant Woman Suffragists, 1913-1920
A Crowdsourcing Experiment

This collaborative project provided a rare opportunity to engage women's history students in the research, interpretation, and writing of women's history for a broad public. Students received authorship credit for their work and made a contribution to the new research associated with the centennial celebration of the passage of Woman Suffrage in the United States.

You can access sketches already published for this project at If you have additional information about one of our NWP suffragists and would like to offer revisions to an existing sketch, please contact Tom Dublin at
