Womens suffrage was one of the many important events that took place in our history. It portrayed negative and unequal rights toward women. In search for equality, Susan B. Anthony was the forming leader who brought women their rights in the United States. She “dedicated her life to “the cause,” the woman suffrage movement.” He accomplishments during the time help form the Nineteenth Amendment, which was in the year 1920 . Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. Achieving this milestone required a lengthy and difficult struggle; victory took decades of agitation and protest. Beginning in the mid-19th century, several generations of woman suffrage supporters lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to achieve what many Americans considered a radical change of the Constitution. Few early supporters lived to see final victory in 1920.
