More Women’s History: The Woman’s Tribune, 1883-1909

The Woman’s Tribune, with its motto in the masthead: “Equality Before The Law,” was launched by Clara Bewick Colby from her home in Beatrice, Nebraska in August 1883. The Woman’s Tribune and Colby as publisher – also editor, typesetter, and correspondent — would become one of America’s most outspoken proponents of Women’s Suffrage and political rights.

The Woman’s Tribune’s audience included many of the leading activists within the Women’s Suffrage movement, as well as potential suffragist converts among women in the trans-Mississippi West. Colby worked hard to establish the newspaper’s philosophical identity at a time when the Suffrage Movement was characterized by opposing, often vitriolic, factions.

Susan B. Anthony, on more than one occasion, considered The Woman’s Tribune as the organ of the National Woman Suffrage Association, even though the Tribune was never formally affiliated with any national group.

As the second-longest-running woman suffrage newspaper, it was significant for several reasons –

  • Unlike many other Suffrage newspapers, the Tribune was designed as a general circulation newspaper.
  • Colby believed that her newspaper should connect suffrage to other issues of importance and interest to women, particularly to the rural women of the Midwest and West.
  • Political and international issues were presented in the newspaper – Colby was the first officially-recognized woman war correspondent representing a woman’s newspaper during the Spanish-American War.
  • The Tribune was probably the first woman’s paper fully published by a woman.
  • Highly regarded by Suffrage Movement leaders. Elizabeth Cady Stanton considered it “the best suffrage paper ever published” and allowed it to serialize two of her most important works, her autobiography and The Woman’s Bible.

This collection comprises the complete run of all 724 issues subdivided into five parts by date range:

  • The Woman’s Tribune, Part I: 1883-1887
  • The Woman’s Tribune, Part II: 1888-1892
  • The Woman’s Tribune, Part III: 1893-1897
  • The Woman’s Tribune, Part IV: 1898-1902
  • The Woman’s Tribune, Part V: 1903-1909

Now Available: The 19th Amendment Victory: A Newspaper History

Malvern, PA (February 11, 2020) – Accessible Archives, Inc., a digital publisher of full-text primary source historical collections, announces the release of  Part VII: The 19th Amendment Victory: A Newspaper History, 1762-1922 to its Women’s Suffrage Collection. This collection documents how generations of Women fought for the right to vote.

The ratification of this amendment on August 18, 1920 was a long and arduous undertaking which started during the revolutionary period when American colonists were fighting against lack of representation in government.

The first half of the 19th century found strong women, a sizable number now educated, running businesses, moving across the country as pioneers, participating in reform movements and making their voices heard.

Follow the issues leading up to the 1848 Seneca Falls convention organized by Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Delve into newspaper articles documenting how the anti-slavery movement fed into the suffrage movement. You can read those divergent arguments which motivated leading crusaders like Margaret Fuller, the Grimke sisters, Susan B. Anthony and Lucy Stone.

Learn firsthand how the Civil War, Reconstruction, voting demands in the 1870s, and World War I all contributed to women’s and America’s victory.

The 19th Amendment collection begins with newspaper articles from the 1760s and concludes with those surrounding legal victory in the 1920s. Accessible Archives has carefully uncovered over 18,000 articles from of its rich historical archive not previously included in the Suffrage Collection to bring you this exceptional compilation in one searchable database.

According to Iris Hanney, President, Unlimited Priorities, “We are delighted to bring out this collection that further documents how the vote for Women evolved.”

The 19th Amendment Victory: A Newspaper History, 1762-1922 joins Accessible Archives’ line-up of Women’s Suffrage Collection titles as Part VII:

  • Part I: The Lily, 1849-1856
  • Part II: National Citizen and Ballot Box, 1878-1881
  • Part III: The Revolution, 1868-1872
  • Part IV: The New Citizen, 1909-1912; The Western Woman Voter, 1911-1913
  • Part V: The Remonstrance, 1890-1913
  • Part VI: The National Tribune: A Women’s Suffrage and Temperance Journal, 1870-1872
