The Fight for Women's Suffrage

A hundred years ago, women in most of the United States could not vote.

August 18th marks the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution – which gave women nationwide the right to vote in every election.

Generations of women fought for more than seven decades to achieve their rights. They fought to be heard, and were often told they needed to be patient, and wait while other, more pressing, problems were resolved.
