Letter to Amber Rudd, Secretary of State. The Independent Review on Sharia: Sharia Laws are part of the extremist threat and not a solution. As black and minority women and human rights campaigners, we voice our dismay at the outcome of the independent review on Sharia laws commissioned by the government in 2016.
Between 1910 and 1914, the NAWSA intensified its lobbying efforts and additional states extended the franchise to women: Washington, California, Arizona, Kansas, and Oregon. In Illinois, future Congresswoman of Illinois helped lead the fight for suffrage as a lobbyist in Springfield when the state legislature granted women the right to vote in 1913. This marked the first such victory for women in a state east of the Mississippi River. A year later Montana granted women the right to vote, thanks in part to the efforts of another future Congresswoman, Jeannette Rankin.

Egyptian women are currently under siege, fighting to hold on to the rights they have spent decades acquiring. A concerted effort is underway to sideline them politically, professionally, and educationally. In the midst of a disturbing mix of urgent economic and social problems it is easy for many to believe that women’s issues can wait. Yet women make up almost half of Egypt’s voting bloc and are therefore vital to its political future. Women’s rights are also often an excellent indicator of how a nation will treat minorities, and no democracy can claim security without ensuring it for its minorities.

In 1915 Carrie Chapman Catt, a veteran suffragist since the mid-1880s and a former president of the NAWSA, again secured the organization’s top leadership post. Catt proved to be an adept administrator and organizer whose “Winning Plan” strategy called for disciplined and relentless efforts to achieve state referenda on the vote, especially in nonwestern states.9 Key victories—the first in the South and East—followed in 1917, when Arkansas and New York granted partial and full voting rights, respectively. Beginning in 1917, President Wilson (a convert to the suffrage cause) urged Congress to pass a voting rights amendment. Another crowning achievement also was reached that year when Montana’s Jeannette Rankin was sworn into the 65th Congress (1917–1919) on April 2. Elected two years after her state enfranchised women, Rankin became the first woman to serve in the national legislature.
