"... We can never understand how a group might do something that goes against its own best interest, but women were influenced by their husbands and their fathers and then they really did believe — I mean there were strong beliefs — that a woman’s place was in the home, and they don’t need to vote, and they have influence through their husbands or their men who can vote, and that’s enough." -- Beth Judy

Author Beth Judy talks about her book "Bold Women In Montana History" on this episode of "The Write Question."
