4.04 Civil Rights Assignment
19th Amendment
Brown v. Board of Education
Civil Rights Act of 1964
Roe v. Wade
The 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920. This Amendment gave women the right to vote. After centuries of fighting and protesting, women were finally officially considered citizens. This Amendment gave women a say, and allowed them to stand up for what they believe in. This amendment is significant for civil rights because it allowed men and women to be one step closer to being considered equals.

Oliver Brown took this case to the Supreme Court, where they ruled that segregated schools violated the 14th Amendment. The court justices believed that segregated schools were not considered "separate but equal," as they were supposed to be under the 14th Amendment. The ruling of this case allowed Linda Brown the right to attend an all-white school. The importance of this ruling for civil right is the fact that it put the Constitution on the side of racial equality.

This act limited the use of literary tests used for voting. Not only did it do this, but it prevented segregation in public places. Furthermore, the act baned discrimination in employment as well as any activity receiving federal assistance. This was also the first act that expanded to women as well (unlike the 14th Amendment). This was a huge step for civil rights because it helped to establish blacks as equals in more ways than one, and helped for them to express their right to vote.

This case was brought to the Supreme Court by Jane Roe, and it is considered extremely significant due to the fact that it made a decision about abortion. The court declared that women ultimately had the right to choose based on the 9th Amendment. This topic, as well as this case, is extremely controversial even to this day. This case demonstrates civil rights because it allowed women the right to make decisions about their own bodies.
