19th Amendment Becomes Law
1920

Suffragists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony

This day in 1920 the 19th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution took effect, giving women the right to vote. It had been passed by Congress in 1919, and formally ratified by the last required state legislature — that of Tennessee — on August 18.

Passage of the Amendment marked the end of over half a century of activism by suffragettes, whose roots lay in the Seneca Falls Declaration of 1848.
