In 1869, Frances Ellen Burr and Isabella Beecher Hooker formed the Connecticut Woman Suffrage Association (CWSA) with the goal of winning the vote for women locally, state-wide, and nationally. Like many other states, CT was divided on the issue of woman suffrage, but CT suffragists were committed to the cause holding town meetings, rallies, demonstrations, parades, and other events to garner support for the vote.
