In the 1880s the question of votes for women was reframed in the context of congressional efforts to bring the western territories in as new states and to resolve the political status of Indians and Mormons in the territories. These federal efforts helped suffragists keep the woman question alive in Congress. Specifically, Congressional solutions to the Indian and Mormon problem made voting a federal issue and challenged the constitutional settlement of Minor v. Happersett that had sent the question of votes for women back to the states.
