2019-2020: Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the American Women’s Right to Vote
The article deals with one of the most significant achievements in the history of American women – the right to vote. The 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. Achieving this milestone required lengthy and difficult struggle; it took decades to achieve victory through agitation and protest. The article discusses how in the beginning in the mid-19th century several generations of woman suffrage supporters lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied and practiced civil disobedience to achieve what many Americans considered a radical change of the Constitution. Few early supporters lived to see the final victory in 1920.
