Act Allowed Women to Vote

Gov. Thomas Hardwick signed an act striking from the Georgia Code the prohibition on women voting, holding civil office, or performing any civil functions unless specifically authorized by law. The act, however, continued the statutory prohibition on women serving on military, jury, police, patrol, or road duty.
