Beginning in 1914, North Dakota's men voted on whether or not North Dakota's 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. Woman suffrage opened the door for many turning points in North Dakota history. Women could now voice their own opinions in elections. The Women's Christian Temperance Union voiced their opinions about social reform like prohibition and woman suffrage. Two women who led the way for women in North Dakota were Linda Slaughter and Elizabeth Anderson.
