The Women's Tribune was an American newspaper founded in Beatrice, Nebraska, by suffragette activist Clara Bewick Colby.[1] In print from 1883 to 1909, the newspaper connected radical feminism with women's culture on the Midwestern frontier. Unlike other suffrage papers that focused on urban culture, the Women's Tribune's appeal to the rural and everyday woman made it one of the most powerful voices of feminist ideology during its day.[2]
