I actually am a co-host of the television show Around Kansas with Deb Goodrich. I work remote from AZ and recently I featured Susan B. Anthony and Olympia Brown and the 1867 stump tour for suffrage!

Question: Was Lucy involved in the abolition and temperance movements as well? Do we know how she felt about the extension of suffrage to African American men and women and other women of color including Indigenous, Hispanic, and Asian-American women?
Michelle Martin
46:17
Did Lucy correspond with other women involved in the suffrage movement that perhaps letters exist in other archives that might help us learn more about her views?
Ande Parks
51:09
Do you think that the end of her term also marked the end of Lucy's political influence in Baldwin (or in Kansas)? Is there evidence that she stayed active as a gadfly, or as a general leader in the community? Was local backlash against her term so entrenched that such influence wasn't possible?
Kirstin Olson
53:56
I've heard there were a handful of women that preached (mostly Methodist?) in the late 19th century; was that something that Lucy Sweet ever did, or was her dedication to ministry more in support of her husband?
Jill Burgen
56:22
I live near Women’s Bridge and I have read the sign.
Belinda DeMott

Lifelong Kansas but I did not know about her.

Laura Dickinson

When first moving to BC 20+ years ago, the Women's Bridge and the first female mayor was brought forward as something unique about the community..
Kathryn Tuttle
