women’s right to vote

This evening I decided to work on a post about British suffragettes that I started a long time ago and abandoned, only to discover that it was 85 years ago today that the 19th amendment of the Constitution was ratified, granting women the right to vote.

While I work on the suffragettes some more, here’s some links on the suffrage movement in the U.S.:

  • “Votes for Women” suffrage pictures from the Library of Congress
  • “Votes for Women” selections from the National American Woman Suffrage Collection, also from the LoC
  • A timeline of the women’s suffrage movement (from the above site)
  • A speech from Susan B. Anthony
  • The 19th Amendment in the context of World War I
