Women lose the right to vote in New Jersey, the last state to revoke the right.
The Woman suffrage movement actually began in 1848, when the first women’s rights convention was held in Seneca Falls New York. For the next 50 years, women suffrage supporters worked to educate the American public.
“On Election Day in 1920, millions of American women exercised their right to vote for the first time. It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right, and the campaign was not easy: Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. But on August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising all American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserve all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.”
