Today In History - 19th Amendment Adopted

1920 : 19th Amendment adopted giving us ladies the right to vote!

The amendment was the culmination of more than 70 years of struggle by woman suffragists. The amendment's two sections read simply: "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex" and "Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

Read more here, and ladies do something special to celebrate today.

If you aren't registered to vote, then please make it a point to do so this week.
