News Display: Supreme Court Defends Women's Voting Rights



On February 27, 1922 eight members of the U.S. Supreme Court declared as constitutional the 19th Amendment which granted women the right to vote. Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the Amendment said that "the right of on citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State on account of sex," -- a landmark achievement for female suffragists and all their supporters.

Join us as we display news about the 19th Amendment and the struggle beginning in the mid 19th century to achieve it.
