Economist Linda Harris Dobkins, offers us a look at the political/economic calculus that led Missouri legislators to give St. Louis women the vote. After which, we’ll analyze the actions of the early female electorate to see if St. Louis women fulfilled, or frustrated, St. Louis mens’ expectations.
