1848

One of the earliest efforts came during the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention in New York, where a resolution in favor of women’s suffrage was passed despite convention organizers’ holding conflicting opinions on the issue.

Suffragists would continue to push for women to be given

the right to vote over the next 72 years until

the 19th Amendment

was adopted on Aug. 26, 1920.

“The vote is the emblem of your equality, women of America, the guarantee of your liberty. That vote of yours has cost millions of dollars and the lives of thousands of women.

Money to carry on this work has been given usually as a sacrifice, and thousands of women have gone without things they wanted and could have had in order that they might help get the vote for you.

Women have suffered agony of soul which you can never comprehend, that you and your daughters might inherit political freedom. T hat vote has been costly. Prize it!

The vote is a power, a weapon of offense and defense, a prayer. Understand what it means and what it can do for your country. Use it intelligently, conscientiously, prayerfully.”
