The anthology explores the impact of the Northern Great Plains states—South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming—on the national movement. In “Equality at the Ballot Box: Votes for Women on the Northern Great Plains,” editors Lori Ann Lahlum and Molly P. Rozum have compiled a set of original essays that illuminate the woman suffrage movement and explore the untold stories of women who traveled immense distances to win over a contentious public. “‘Equality at the Ballot Box’ is helpful for understanding the larger picture of woman suffrage, including the significance of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, school suffrage, and the anti- suffrage movement,” says Nancy Tystad Koupal, director of the South Dakota Historical Society Press. “This volume reveals the impact this isolated, rural region had on women’s rights nationwide.” On Dec. 10, 1869, the governor of Wyoming Territory signed the first bill giving women full voting rights in the United States. Suffragists in the neighboring territories of Montana and Dakota believed their prospects were similarly bright. Over the next 20 years, however, organizers’ efforts to secure votes for women met only limited success. While suffragists hoped the territories’ respective bids for statehood in 1889 and 1890 would change their fortunes, only Wyoming enshrined voting rights for all in its state constitution. The fight for full woman suffrage on the Northern Great Plains would take decades. The contributors to “Equality at the Ballot Box” build upon classic woman suffrage scholarship and develop new ideas that capture the spirit of suffrage on the Northern Great Plains. The region’s unique circumstances are considered, including significant populations of European immigrants and American Indians as well as harsh climates and sprawling landscapes. By turning scholarly attention to this area, Lahlum and Rozum start a conversation and point to rich avenues for further exploration. Lahlum is a professor of history at Minnesota State University, Mankato, where she teaches courses on the American West, environmental history, Minnesota history, western women’s and gender history, and political history in the northern grasslands. With Betty Bergland, she edited “Norwegian American Women: Migration, Communities, and Identities.” Lahlum grew up on a farm in LaMoure County, N.D. Rozum is an associate professor and Ronald M. Nelson Chair of Great Plains and South Dakota history at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion. She teaches courses on United States women, the Great Plains, the American West, and South Dakota. She earned a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a B.A. from the University of Notre Dame. Rozum is a native of Mitchell. “Equality at the Ballot Box” is available for $34.95, plus shipping and tax and can be ordered directly from the South Dakota Historical Society Press at sdhspress.com or by calling 605-773-6009.

For Industry Website PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Tourism and marketing agency Miles Partnership were awarded a 2019 WebAward for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development by the Web Marketing Association. The winning entry was the launch of the department’s new industry website, SDVisit.com. “We are honored to be recognized with this award after a very thoughtful effort went into building this new website,” said James Hagen, Secretary of the Department of Tourism. “We couldn’t be happier with how the site turned out, and we are confident that our tourism industry partners are finding it to be useful and helpful. To hear the judges call it a ‘fantastic site’ is very rewarding.” The Department of Tourism recognized that its old industry website was dated and difficult to navigate. With that realization in mind, the department sought to build a new website that would incorporate the latest web development techniques while providing information such as research and reports, marketing programs, training resources, an industry toolkit, industry events, the latest news, and information about the Department of Tourism staff. “The Department of Tourism continues to prove that its work is top-notch,” said Governor Kristi Noem. “I’m proud of their accomplishments and the emphasis they’re placing on providing resources to our state’s tourism industry partners. That’s what public service is all about – doing what we can to serve the needs of our public – and the tourism team is doing just that.” The South Dakota Department of Tourism is comprised of Tourism and the South Dakota Arts Council. The department is led by Secretary James Hagen.
