On Election Day in 1920, millions of American women exercised their right to vote for their first time. It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right. And the campaign was not easy. Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. On August 26, 1920 the 19th amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, all American women and declaring for the first time that they like men deserve all the rights, responsibilities of citizenship. The campaign for women suffrage began in the earnest in the decades before before the Civil War. Many American women were beginning to chafe against what historians have called the "Cult Of True Womanhood" that was the idea that the only "True" woman was a pious, submissive wife and mother concerned exclusively with home and family.
Put together all of these contributed to a new way of thinking about what it meant to be a women and a citizen in the United States. In 1848 a group of abolitionist activists - mostly women, but some men - gathered in Seneca Falls, New York to discuss the problem of women's rights. American women's were autonomous individuals who deserved their own political identities. "We hold these truth to be self-evident", proclaimed the Declaration of Sentiments that the delegates produced, " that all men and women are created equal' that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the persuot of happiness." What these meant among other things was that they believed women should have the right to vote. World War 1 slowed the suffragists campaign but helped them advanced their argument nonetheless: Women's work on behalf of the War effort, activists pointed out, proved that they were just as patriotic and deserving of citizenship as men, and on August 26, 1920 the 19th Admedment to the Constitution was finally ratified.
