Dolores "Lola" Elizabeth Chavez de Armijo won a landmark case for Women's Rights to hold public office in a sex-discrimination battle with Governo William C McDonald in 1912. He wanted to remove her from office simply for being a woman and to put in a political friend to whom he owed a favor. In 1913, the New Mexico House of Representatives recognized the discrimination women in the state and passed a bill that allowed women to hold any appointed office
Her parents were Jose Francisco Xavier Chavez (1833-1905) and Mary Bowie( ? - 1873).
