WOMEN AND THE RIGHT TO VOTE
A TRUE BOOK
Even before the founding of the U.S., women have been fighting for the right to be heard. How did women finally get the right to vote in 1920 and which women were actually included? It was a long, hard struggle in which women battled with words and non-violent protests. Many black, native American, Asian and Latina women fought for the vote but many were effectively still unable to vote in 1920 and waited many decades more. Find out the stories of these brave, persistent women. In 2020, Americans celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment but few know what it took to get there.
