The 19th Amendment guarantees American women the right to vote without being denied due to their gender.

In the 1800's, women petitioned for the right to vote because they felt that they deserved equal opportunity.

Men were against the decision because they thought it would give women too much power. Women's duties were to take care of the home and serve their husbands. Giving them such power could distract them from their duties.

The Amendment was introduced in 1878, and it was ratified in 1920.

The ratification of the Amendment was due to mutiple strategies on behalf of the women involved. They passed suffrage acts, challenged male-only laws in court, and some even participated in hunger strikes and parades.
The 26th Amendment protects the rights of those 18 years of age or older.

The argument for this amendment was that those old enough to be drafted for war, should be allowed to vote.

The Amendment was introduce right after the Vietnam War, due to the unpopularity of this war and its high amount of young soldiers.

The Amendment was ratified on July 1st. 1971 .
