This Month's Featured Story
This month marks the anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, guaranteeing all American women the right to vote. The movement formally began in 1848 at the Seneca Falls Convention. The meeting was organized by abolitionists Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton who, along with Susan B. Anthony and other activists, formed organizations that raised public awareness and lobbied the government to grant voting rights to women. After a 70-year battle, these groups finally emerged victorious with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920.
