"Women, Their Rights, and Nothing Less"

Library of Congress American Memories Collection
Women obtained the right to vote nationwide in 1920. Before 1920, only criminals, the insane, Native Americans, and women were denied the vote. The modern woman's suffrage movement began in the 1840s with the Seneca Falls Convention. You've come a long way, baby. How did it happen and why? Students will understand the importance of primary sources in historical inquiry and describe and compare methods used by suffragists to pass the 19th amendment at the national level.
