June 16 marks the 100th anniversary of Kansas ratifying the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting full voting rights to women. The national law took effect the following year, but women in Kansas had actually been voting since 1912. In fact, Kansas was the 8th state to independently grant full suffrage to women, despite the lack of a national law. In celebration of women's suffrage, freelance reporter Emily Thompson prepared this report about one woman's fight for equality... right here in Kansas.
