Image 3 of 12


Demonstrators wave banners in one of New York's famous women's suffrage parades. In 1918, Congress passed what became, when it was ratified in 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment, which prohibited state and federal agencies from gender-based restrictions on voting. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton drafted the amendment and first introduced it in 1878.
