This month...

This month in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, finally recognizing the right of women to vote.
"Through the activism of suffrage organizations and independent political parties, women's suffrage was established in the newly formed constitutions of Wyoming Territory (1869), Utah (1870), and Washington Territory (1883)."
Initiated at the Seneca Falls convention in 1848, pursued for a lifetime by Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and many others, electoral equality for women was obtained on 18 August 1920 when Tennessee became the 36th state to ratify the 19th Amendment.
Well done, Sister Suffragettes!
