This chapter describes the Beecher sisters' contribution to women's suffrage work. Isabella's usual outlet for frustrations in her personal life, the suffrage work, was blocked to some extent on the national level. After the first convention of the united National American Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA) in 1890, she continued to attend the Washington conventions. Isabella noted that the country was large and that women could not get too many Associations before the public to urge their demands for full and equal suffrage. The founders divided the United States into four districts longitudinally in order to assure the cooperation of northern and southern women in each district. Isabella cited statistics from the National Commissioner of Education, showing that fifty-five percent of students above the elementary school level were female.
