Women's Equality Day - Voting History
August 26 is National Women’s Equality Day, and this year marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. This was the provision that allowed women to vote - previously, only men could vote - by stating that “the rights of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex” (1). Voting has a long and storied history throughout the United States; in order to understand the importance of Women’s Equality Day and the significance of the right to vote, a brief recounting of the history of voting in the United States of America is necessary.
