The Nineteenth Amendment

The Nineteenth Amendment | Christine Gebhardt - 19th Amendment | Scoop.it
This page includes materials relating to the controversy surrounding the Nineteenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.
Christine Gebhardt's insight:

 The beginning suffrage goes all the way back to the "Declaration of Sentiments", which was produced at the first women rigths convention in 1848. Some even tried to stretch the law so ex-slaves could also have the right to vote, but that never did happen. In 1872 many people tried challenging it by saying that voting was a privilege of a U.S. citizen. In 1878 a constitutional congress was proposed that someone would not be denied the right to vote based on their sex. For the next 41years this was brought up in every session of congress. In May of 1919 the two/thirds that was needed for it to be passed was finally reached, and in 1920 it finally became an amendment.

The 19th amendment allows every american women to vote. It was a very difficult thing the pass and wasn't passed for a few decades. Women started petitions in the 1800s and it wasnt passed until August 18,1920. Sometimes the people that didnt agree that women should have the rigth to vote often acted back violently towards the women. The house of rep. passed it in May of 1919, and two weeks later the senate passed it.
