Transcript Women's Suffrage AUGUST 26, 1920 to AUGUST 26, 1990 SEVENTY YEARS OF SUFFRAGE The Nineteenth Amendment to the United. States Constitution reads: "The right of the citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State on account of sex. " Women won that right to vote after a long, hard battle. In 1848, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and others met in the town of Seneca Falls, New York. They formed the famous Seneca Falls Convention. One of the demands made at that convention was for women's suffrage. Women must have the right to vote. Four women became famous as workers for suffrage: Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony.- and Lucy Stone. None of these women lived to see the . suffrage amendment ratified. In June of 1919 the Senate approved what had. come to be called the Anthony Amendment,- after the House of Representatives had previously approved it. Then it took over a year to gather the approval of the thirty-six states needed. Finally, on August 18, 1920, the state of Tennessee became that thirty-sixth state, and, on August 26, 1920. the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution became the law of the land. Suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt's message resounds to us over the years: "Women have suffered an agony of soul... that you and your daughters might inherit political freedom. That vote has been costly. Prize it!"
