The North Dakota Woman Suffrage Centennial Committee presents Persistence, a radio play by Kathy Coudle-King in consultation with Barbara Handy-Marchello and Susan Wefald.

Elizabeth Preston Anderson and Linda Slaughter were two leaders of the fight for woman suffrage in North Dakota. They come back to life to narrate the 52 year-long struggle, along with several of the players and characters who affected it — Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Cora Eaton Smith, Big Alex McKenzie and others. History told with humor and drama.


Funding for this Prairie Public radio production was made possible by the estate of Carolyn Pickard Handy through the generosity of Barbara Handy Marchello. This project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
