Louisa May Alcott: Inspiring Women Writers, Rocking the Vote

In March of 1880, nineteen women voted for the first time in a town election. Two of those who cast their ballots were sisters; the younger was a famous author. That author, the first woman to register, was Louisa May Alcott. The town was Concord, MA, and the election was for the local school committee. Louisa voted with her older sister, Anna Alcott Pratt.1 For Louisa and Anna, the most important accomplishment was their taking that first step towards fulfilling their mother Abigail’s long-cherished dream of women’s suffrage.
