Women's Suffrage Movement

In less than twenty four hours, election day polls will open and women will help determine who our next President will be. Sadly, his was not always the case, but  we can thank women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth and Carrie Chapman Catt for leading the Women's Suffrage Movement. Due to their actions the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was added allowing women the right to vote.
