Suffragist Katherine Smith, the Seattleite who helped win the vote

Suffragist Katherine Smith

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, granting women the constitutional right to vote. Here in Washington, the right to vote was given to women a decade earlier. One of our state's foremost suffrage leaders was Katherine Smith, an Alki resident, who would go on to take up the fight in other states and at the national level.
