On February 28, 1920, Oklahoma voted to ratify the 19th Amendment thanks to Aloysius Larch-Miller, a 33-year-old Shawnee woman who sacrificed her health and her life so all women would have the right to vote. This week on LoyalTV, learn about the life of Aloysius Larch-Miller and how her heroic efforts led to Oklahoma becoming number 33 of the 36 states needed to make the 19th Amendment law and one step closer to guaranteeing women an equal voice and vote in our democracy.
