June 10, 2019
The Women’s and Gender Studies program is happy to commemorate the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Women’s Right to Vote, June 4, 1920
Stay tuned for the activities and events scheduled for fall 2020 in celebration of all suffragists and their fight for the right to vote for their elected officials.
Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. Achieving this milestone required a lengthy and difficult struggle; victory took decades of agitation and protest.
