August  1995 was the 75th anniversary of the qualified bill that passed around the United States for woman’s rights to vote. Achieving this great turning point took a lot of strain and struggle in the early 1900’s from lecturing to marching. Between 1878 when the bill was first introduced to August 18th 1920 the champions worked endless hours and trying different methods to achieve their goals. In 1916 all of this work paid off because almost all of American alignment amalgamated at the heels of the goal of the constitutional amendment. Once New York took place and stood by the side of woman and their rights to vote, President Wilson also took action in the amendment in 1918. May, 1919 the house of representatives passed the bill , 2 weeks later the Senate followed.  August, 18 ,1920 the amendment obtained the final step of the agreement and passed on over three-fourths of the country which then addressed to the Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby who then certified and ratified the amendment.
