In 1912 the Arizona Equal Suffrage Association hosted prominent suffragist Anna Howard Shaw to speak about the cause at the Flagstaff Courthouse. A native of Geneseo, New York, Shaw was a doctor, minister, and president of the National Woman’s Suffrage League. In addition to these impressive credentials, she was also a gifted public speaker who traveled across the country promoting women’s right to vote. 1912 was an especially notable year for Arizona as it became the 48th state to join the United States and also granted women the right to vote, one of the few states to do so.
