Women in South Dakota could vote on school matters long before they gained full voting rights in 1918. Jones is a historian from Waukesha, Wis., who wrote the essay "'The Women Voted:' The Role of School Suffrage in the Woman Suffrage Movement" published in the book "Equality at the Ballot Box: Votes for Women on the Northern Great Plains."
