Eden Edelson's insight:

In this video it starts by showing how from the begining, the women started off small but got bigger. By getting bigger it shows that they earned their rights to have a say in what goes on in the country. They will now be able to vote for president, and in other elections. The women got their voices heard and that caused the government to make changes that were never allowed before. They changed this for all women everywhere because now every woman is allowed to vote and make choices.

Having full suffrage in all of the states was introduced to Congress in 1878. 41 years later, it was passed by both houses of Congress on June 4, 1919, and sent to all of the states to ratify it and make it become a law. Wyoming was one of the first states to have full suffrage while most of the others had limited.Limited suffrage only allowed the women to vote for president and that was only in some of the states.

Citizens United and the 19th Amendment

Citizens United and the 19th Amendment | Eden Edelson 19 | Scoop.it
What campaign finance reformers can learn from America's suffragettes.
Eden Edelson's insight:

In 2010 the Supreme Court handed down the Citizens United decision to President Obama and he described it as “devastating to the public interest” and he promised that he would work to “repair the damage that has been done.” Washington state ratified woman suffrage  in 1910, and Arizona, California, Kansas and Oregon were some of the other states that followed in its footsteps. In  1912 during the presidential election, woman suffrage became a big part in the Progressive Party platform. The Progressive Party platform was a movement to try and get the amdment passed so women would be able to vote. Other states gave limited suffrage in 1917 and 1918, and the U.S. Senate passed the woman suffrage amendment in 1919. It was ratified by three-fourths of the states the next year and that allowed it to be a law in some of the other states.

League of Women Voters celebrates 19th Amendment

League of Women Voters celebrates 19th Amendment | Eden Edelson 19 | Scoop.it
Winning the right to vote was a long, hard-fought battle for women. Women’s Equality Day, an annual national celebration, recognizes that victory.
Eden Edelson's insight:

August 26 today is know as Womens Equality Day. This day celebrates the passing of the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. One woman, Frances Tucker, from the League of Womens Voters of Greater Tuscaloosa said, "I think we take voting for granted, and many people don’t even bother to vote." In 1869 the  two groups, the National Woman Suffrage Association founded by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and the American Woman Suffrage Association led by Lucy Stone, began having riots and making petitons for the right for women to vote. In only the month of September 1920 which was the first month after the 19th Amendment became a law, the League of Women Voters of Alabama reported that 123,000 white women and 100 black women had registered to vote.

Featured Document: The 19th Amendment

Featured Document: The 19th Amendment | Eden Edelson 19 | Scoop.it
Eden Edelson's insight:

The 19th amendment is a gurantee to women the right to vote. 1878 was when the amendment was first introduced in Congress, and 1920, when it was ratified, many women worked very hard to get voting rights.Many of the things that they tried to do to get this right were varied. Some tried to pass suffrage acts in each state.Nine western states ratified woman suffrage legislation by 1912. Other states challenged male-only voting laws in the courts because the men didn't want women to be equal to them and be able to do things that they could.When New York ratified woman suffrage in 1917, and President Wilson changed his mind to support an amendment in 1918,many other states started to change their mind too..On May 21, 1919, the House of Representatives passed the amendment, and two weeks later, the Senate followed.

As We Celebrate the 19th Amendment, Today's Iron-Jawed Angels Must Help All Women Succeed | Eden Edelson 19 | Scoop.it
Ninety-three years ago today women officially earned our right to vote and we've been making our voices heard ever since.
Eden Edelson's insight:

The iron-jawed angels is a group of women that started a movement to help get this amendment ratified.They have been around for 93 years and the women wrote a 'resolution' that states how women don't get treated as equal as men do. It tells how men make more money than women do, and how in 145 other countries around the world get paid for sick days. In the United States, mothers on maternity leave do not get pay but other people get paid for days they were not even at work.

The Mother Who Saved Suffrage: Passing the 19th Amendment

The Mother Who Saved Suffrage: Passing the 19th Amendment | Eden Edelson 19 | Scoop.it
American women achieved the right to vote on August 18, 1920, thanks in part to a Tennessee legislator with a very powerful mother.
Eden Edelson's insight:

The only reason that Tennesse got to ratify the 19th amendment was because of a one vote margin.It became the 36th state to ratify it and make it an official law 8 days later.Harry Burn was  a 24 year old representative from East Tennessee that got the law ratified for them. After a few weeks of debating, there was a tie of 48-48 of whether or not to ratify the amendment and it was all up to Harry Burn. Burn's vote is the main reason that Tennesse has the right for women to vote today, because if he was not there and said, "Aye," women would not have that right.

The Nineteenth Amendment

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

The beginning of the fight for women suffrage is  traced to the "Declaration of Sentiments" which was brought up at the first woman's rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848. Four years later at the Woman's Rights Convention in Syracuse in 1852, Susan B. Anthony joined the fight and said  that "the right women needed above every other...was the right of suffrage."In 1878, a constitutional amendment was proposed that provided "The right of citizens to vote shall not be abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex."Today that amendment is known as the 19th Amendment and women now have the right to vote during every election. There are two sections of the 19th Amendment and they are: 

Section 1: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

Section 2: Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Women\'s Right to Vote | Eden Edelson 19 | Scoop.it
Americas Historical Documents -- Women's Right to Vote
Eden Edelson's insight:

Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. To get to this point took a very long time and many people struggled to make it happen. Many women and support groups had protests, lectured,marched, and cheered. Other people wrote to the government on why women should be able to vote. A lot of their reasons were so everyone could be equal, such as the men and the women. In 1920, when this amendment was passed, many people viewed it as a big change to the U.S. Constitution.
