August 26, 1920
Women's Suffrage
The first Women's Rights Convention met in 1848, but a Women's Suffrage Amendment wasn't presented to Congress for the first time until 1878. It was another four decades before Congress passed tne 19th Amendment and sent it to the states for ratification. The ratification was certified by Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby on August 26, 1920.
