Today, it is almost impossible to imagine a time when women were not allowed to vote in the United States. But while women are today an important force in the nation’s government, they were not guaranteed the right to vote until 1920, with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Readers will find out why women were barred from voting in the country’s early history, how they fought tirelessly against oppression for decades, and how they eventually achieved victory.
