The 19th Amendment & The Women’s Suffrage movement:

When people think of the 19th Amendment, they often incorrectly assume that all women received the right to vote at the same time. By 1920, 15 states had full suffrage, and more had what is often referred to as partial suffrage. Women could vote in some elections, but not all (think local elections or primaries or even school board elections). As many women as there were in support of Suffrage, you also have Anti-Suffrage groups led by women.

In this podcast we discuss the path to the 19th Amendment and some of the champions of the cause.
