Transcript of The 19th Amendment: Women's Suffrage

By: Abigail Trejo Medellin The 19th Amendment; Women's Suffrage What is the purpose of this amendment? When was it ratified? North Carolina's News During The Women's Suffrage Creating A Better Country Its purpose was to grant the voting right to women all over the country. Many famous women participated in this movement like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul. In 1880, they held the 1st National Women's Suffrage Association to discuss about women's voting issues. Ratified August 18th, 1920 At first, North Carolina didn't really want the amendment to pass, so citizens decided to take a stand. During that time both anti-suffrage and pro-suffrage groups vigorously made campains to persuade people to take their side. People such as Governor Thomas Walter Bickett and Senator Furnifold Simmons didn't support Women's Suffrage. But later they started to believe it would aid the Democrats in the presidential race in 1920 so they urged for the ratification of the amendment. As this amendment finally passed, it united the country more by having women giving their own opinion in elections. This started to encourage women to run for congress. For example, in 1920 Lilian Exum Clement became the first woman elected to the NC House of Representatives. This amendment provided women to have a voice in nation-wide decisions. Elizabeth Cady Stanton After a very long time of protesting for this amendment to be passed, the women finally were able to convince the country and congress that we all deserve equal rights. 3 Groups that wanted this amendment to be passed was: The National Women's Suffrage Association
North Carolina League of Women Voters
American Woman Suffrage Association 2 Groups Who Opposed Was: The National Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage
National Anti-Suffrage Associaton Recent Events: Bev Purdue is elected North Carolina's first female Governor in 2000.
