Storyboard Text

  • After the Suffrage Parade the NAWSA cut ties with the NWP. The NWP was the organizer of this protest. Women held signs directing president Wilson's flaws in front of the white house.
  • When the U.S began WW1, some women were arrested. They were placed in a Virginia prision until they were released. Many of the guards would mistreat them by beating them and force feeding them.
  • After a month of being held for their actions they were finally released. A little over 500 had been detained, and 168 had to serve time.
  • President Wilson was not a supporter for woman's suffrage. He later then changed his mind in 1918. He asked for support from a constitutional amendment.
  • March of 1920, 35 of 36 states had approved to the 19th amendment. The 19th amendment was passed and gave the right to women to vote across the county. The 19th amendment was added to the constitution.
  • From this point forward women had the right to vote. Women of different colors had to fall in line with the Jim Crow Laws and did not vote for another 50 years. Today all women over the age of 18 can vote.
