Project Overview


An online timeline of legislation that has significantly affected women from Suffrage (1920) to the present was published. The entries are listed in chronological order. Each point on the timeline has a summary of the legislation and is linked to documentation related to the law's passage. Specific legislation can be indentified in conjunction with how many female legislators were holding office at that time.

The timeline can be displayed in multiple formats and is a permanent piece of the Office on the Economic Status of Women Library with links to the Legislative Reference Library as well as the Minnesota Historical Society website.
