Suffrage

suffrage

On August 26, 1920, the 19th amendment to United States Constitution took effect, giving women the right to vote in every state of the union.

Prior to the passage of this amendment, 15 states allowed women to vote. Most of them were west of the Mississippi. The territory of Wyoming was the first to extend voting rights to women in 1869.
