This Day in History, 1920: The Nineteenth Amendement

Eighty-five years ago today, the ratification of the nineteenth amendement to the United States Constitution was certified by the US Secretary of State, securing for American women the right to vote in all elections.

The Amendment reads:

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. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
