The 19th Amendment

Today, August 26th is Women's Equality Day, commemorating the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the constitution giving women the right to vote.

Please take a moment to remember the contributions of our foremothers who fought a very tough and long campaign to win us this basic right.

The 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America 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 the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
