San Francisco Woman Suffrage
Downtown Walking Tour
In 1911, women in California won the right to vote. This walking tour of downtown San Francisco will introduce you to the wide range of tactics used by the suffragists of San Francisco, who ranged from the waitresses and other working women of the Wage Earners' Suffrage League to upper-class club women. These women made the streets of San Francisco their own to demand their full rights as citizens.
