The 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution granting American women the right to vote, a right known as women’s suffrage, was ratified in 1920 and ended 133 years of inequality at the ballot box for women. On Nov. 2, 1920, more than eight million women across the U.S. voted in elections for the first time.
