Ninety-three years ago, in 1919, the House of Representatives passed a proposed Amendment to the Constitution with a 304 to 90 vote:
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any States on account of sex. The Congress shall have the power by appropriate legislation to enforce the provisions of this article.
Ninety-two years ago today on August 26, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution became law, and women could vote…just in time for the presidential election.
Happy Birthday to the Women’s Suffrage! But since I simply cannot outdo the post I wrote on this back in October of 2012, I ask you take jut a few minutes and go HERE. Perhaps you’ll understand and appreciate what these women fought for so many years ago.
But please come back here and share your thoughts!
