This study examines the efforts of three groups of Mississippi women in pursuit of expanded electoral rights for women during the interwar years. The Mississippi chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Mississippi Federation of Women's Clubs, and the Mississippi State Federation of Colored Women's Clubs worked to protect and PURSUE voting rights after the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. This thesis focuses on memory as a particularly effective method they employed on behalf of their goals. Each group crafted and took advantage of distinct memory traditions to establish a foundation for women as voting citizens.
