In 1920, the US Constitution’s 19th Amendment was ratified—declaring no citizen could be denied the right to vote based on their sex. For more than 100 years, women’s suffrage supporters fought for this right. However, the racially divided movement did not address the intersecting inequalities of race, class, and ethnicity. As we acknowledge the movement’s flaws, we also celebrate everyone who worked to give women the chance to transform this country with their votes.
