Storyboard Text

  • During America’s early history, women were denied some of the basic rights enjoyed by male citizens.
  • I agree, but what can we do. They basically control our lives.
  • Men can vote, own property, and even take our money that WE deserved. We have to do something about it!
  • hey ladies, got any money left. We're going to the bar later...
  • yes...10 dollars...here.
  • married women couldn’t own property and had no legal claim to any money they might earn, and no female had the right to vote. Women were expected to focus on housework and motherhood, not politics
  • wish we could do something about it.
  • Did y'all hear that the Senate passed the Women's Rights Amendment!
  • on June 4, 1919, the U.S. Senate passed the 19th Amendment by two votes over its two-thirds required majority, 56-25. The amendment was then sent to the states for ratification.
  • Yes! We finally won't have to listen to what the men tell us to do!
  • On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was certified by U.S. Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby, and women finally achieved the long-sought right to vote throughout the United States.
  • yea, yea... amazing for y'all.
  • Yay!! Our first time voting.
  • On November 2 of that same year, more than 8 million women across the U.S. voted in elections for the first time.
  • It took over 60 years for the remaining 12 states to ratify the 19th Amendment. Mississippi was the last to do so, on March 22, 1984.
  • Yea!! I am happy that we can keep everything we worked for. Now that is fair.
  • Everything is finally how it should be...we are finally somewhat equal.
