  • Washington State Legendary Women’s Suffrage Leader (and a Republican)

    Did you know? A piece of Tacoma History! Emma Smith DeVoe the legendary women’s suffrage leader (and later the Vice Chair of the Washington State Republican Party) who directed the “still hunt” strategy to pick off political opponents and quietly stalk enough male votes to amend the Washington constitution to include the vote for women. In November 1910, she and other leaders in the movement succeeded in making Washington one of the first States to give women the vote. A decade after the State amendment, Emma was at a seat of honor when the Washington legislature voted to ratify the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution on March 23rd, 1920 (second from the last state to do so). DeVoe went on to become vice chair of the State Republican Party and held leadership positions in the National party. Her column in the Tacoma News Tribune, called “The Viewpoint of a Republican Woman”. She was elected to the National Women’s Hall of Fame in the year 2000.
