100 Years Ago...
The Nineteenth amendment which granted women the right to vote in all elections in the United States was ratified 100 years ago in 1920. The exact date is August 18th, 1920. The first formal call for women's suffrage took place at the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848. Led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott a "Declaration of Grievances" was created which listed the dissatisfactions women had with their current position in society. The lack of a right to vote was among those grievances however, not their main focus.
After women were excluded from the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments ratified in the 1860s which focused on men and making it illegal to deny voting rights based on race and prior servitude, the first two women's voting rights organizations were created. The American Woman Suffrage Association founded by Lucy Stone and her husband, Harry Blackwell. At the same time Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony created the National Woman Suffrage Association. These two organizations merged creating the National American Woman Suffrage Association in 1880 after their first amendment was defeated by congress in 1887. Alice Paul and Carrie Chapman Catt were among the leadership of that organization. More than seventy years passed between the Seneca Falls Convention and the summer of 1919 when the house and senate passed the amendment. Now, approval was needed from thirty-six states to ratify the amendment. Tennessee was the thirty-sixth state to ratify the amendment on August 18th, 1920. Women were now guaranteed the right to vote in their first presidential election two months later in November of 1920. (Snider)
