The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. – Nineteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, Certified August 26, 1920
Support our mission to educate, inspire, and empower present and future generations to remain vigilant in the quest for equal rights.
Women were not included in the Constitution until the 19th Amendment. The ratification of the 19th Amendment led to the largest single one-day increase of potential voters in the history of the United States.
It took 72 years to pass and ratify the 19thAmendment and more than 100 years to fully honor the millions who fought for women to have a voice in their government. Please plan a visit to learn more at the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial.
The Turning Point Suffragist Memorial provides an overview of the entire movement, including African American suffragists who are often left out of the history books.
