Beginning in 1914, North Dakota's men voted on whether or not North Dakota women should have the right to vote. It was not until 1920 that women in North Dakota finally had the right to vote in all elections. Women could now voice their own opinions in elections. The Women's Christian Temperance Union voiced their opinions about social reform such as prohibition and woman suffrage. Linda Slaughter and Elizabeth Anderson were two women who led the way for women in North Dakota.
