This month marks the 100th anniversary of California granting
women the right to vote. Decades before 1911, however, women had a
champion in a Lodi pioneer who fought hard for women's rights but
died four years before women won rights in this state. California
was one of a handful of states to grant rights to women before the
national constitution was amended in 1919.
