Woman’s Rights in Nebraska and Kentucky

Woman’s Rights in Nebraska  — Civilization in the West is getting the star of the East.  While in this part of the country we are only discussing woman’s rights, the lower branch of the Legislature of Nebraska has passed an act extending the right of suffrage to women.  It passed by four majority, but we do not find that it was acted upon by the other branch.

Woman’s Rights in Kentucky  — The Kentucky Legislature has adopted an act authorizing the courts to give married women the right to do business and hold property, distinct from their husbands, when the latter are intemperate, or otherwise fail to perform the duties of husbands and fathers.
