Women's Suffrage (see page 33 for additional information)

For the next half century, women would push for the vote in both the US Congress and state legislatures. For much of that period, they won only partial victories.  By the dawn of the 20th century, they could vote on school matters in 19 of what were then 48 states, and had a say on tax issues in three states. 

"The People's Verdict" – produced by The New York State Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage - showed where matters stood in various states by 1916. 

It must be pointed out that not all women supported the suffrage movement.  In fact, some woman organized to defeat the vote for women.  They regarded "feminism" as "hysterical" and "a return to barbarism."

Women finally won the vote in 1920, with the addition of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
