Beginnings of the Movement

Declaration of T.H. Mundine, July 8, 1868

In 1868, a group of delegates was elected to write a new state constitution that would allow Texas to rejoin the Union. T.H. Mundine of Burleson County introduced a declaration that would put the right of equal suffrage for women in the new constitution. Mundine's declaration was recommended by the Committee on State Affairs but rejected by the convention as a whole.
