Nineteenth Amendment

Women's suffrage
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any States on account of sex.
Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

What does this mean??
Women can finally vote!!

Why this picture?
This was before the 19th amendment was passed and it shows women protesting their unfair treatment and asking for  equal rights especially when it comes to voting. This was just one of many pictures that are of women fighting for their rights.
