"The majority of women being natural-born housekeepers, why shouldn't the infinite details of a Governor's office appeal to the female of the species?"

This deep thought was put to the public by the inquisitive souls at The Birmingham News just four years after the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted American women the right to vote.

The attached article concerns the 1924 elections which saw women swept into high political offices all across the fruited plain, among them:

Mrs. Mariam A Ferguson as the Governor of Texas
Mrs. Nellie T. Ross as the Governor of Wyoming
Mrs. Mary T. Norton as a Representative of New Jersey
Mrs. Florence Knapp as the New York Secretary of Sate.

The article continues in this vain, listing all significant offices that would soon be held by women and clearly indicates that the year 1924 was, for those who are mindful of the course of American political history, a very different year.

There is no doubt about it: women really did rock the vote, click here to read about it.
