Women's Suffrage

In the late 19th century and early 20th century, women in Europe and in the United States of America protested for their right to vote and have suffrage. In 1920 the United States passed the nineteenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women the right to vote, all women in England were granted full suffrage rights in 1928. The legacies of many of the suffragists, such as Susan B. Anthony, live on today.
