Woman’s Suffrage


What were the arguments for and against providing women the right to vote

Voting is an essential right in a democracy. However, for much of U.S. history women did not have the right to vote. In the mid-nineteenth century some women began to demand that right. It was not until 1920, with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment that woman's suffrage became constitutionally protected.
