The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which granted women the right to vote. Suffrage: Women’s Long Battle for the Vote explores the full scope of the dramatic and inspiring suffrage movement—which brought half of the American population into the voting body, gave them fundamental political rights, and recognized their existence as individuals beyond the scope of family roles.
