The Ratification of Number 19

On August 18th, 1920 the 19th Amendment was ratified, granting American woman the right to vote.

Interesting that less than 100 years ago woman couldn’t vote for their elected officials and we currently have a woman running for Presidency. Disregarding political associations or opinions on the woman herself; it is a fact that the women of this country have leveled the playing field and contributed equally to its growth.
