Women's Suffrage in Texas

Learn about the champions for Texas women's suffrage, political strategies, anti-suffrage sentiments, efforts to amend the Texas Constitution and the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment with Melissa Prycer, president and executive director at Dallas Heritage Village.

Melissa holds a master’s degree in public history from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina.   Prior to joining Dallas Heritage Village, she worked as an intern at several museums in Dallas.

She has served in a variety of leadership roles for the Texas Association of Museums, the American Association for State and Local History, and other museum associations.  As a historian, she presented “The Hectic Flush: The Fiction and Reality of Consumption in L.
