Details

2020 marks one-hundred years since women voted in their first national election. Getting the vote was no tea party. The suffrage movement was a 72-year struggle for women who overcame barriers, setbacks, and a disagreement that almost crippled the movement. On August 26, 1920, their goal came to fruition with the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. These women made history!
