Votes for Women 1911
Artist B.M. Boye

On 10 October 1911, Proposition 4 of 1911 (or Senate Constitutional Amendment No. 8)  granted women the right to vote in California for the first time. It was proposed by the California State Legislature and approved by voters in a referendum held as part of a special election on 10 October 1911. California became the sixth U.S. state to adopt the reform. Nine years later women’s suffrage was recognized at the federal level by the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This prohibited both the federal government and all of the states from denying women the right to vote.
