Storyboard Text

  • I am Jeannette Rankin of Montana and I am the first woman in America to represent my state in the House of Representatives of The United States of America.
  • House of Representatives
  • In 1916 NAWSA president Carrie Chapman unveils her "winning plan" for suffrage victory at a convention in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Catt's plan required the coordination of activities by a vast cadre of suffrage workers in both state and local associations.
  • From this moment forward, women in our country, The United States of America, are entitled to vote.
  • In 1916, the same year, Jeannette Rankin of Montana becomes the first American woman in the U.S. House of Representatives.
  • In 1918, two years later, World War I intervenes to slow down the suffrage campaign as some, but not all, suffragists decide to shelve their suffrage activism in favor of "war work." In the long run, however, this decision proves to be a prudent one as it adds yet another reason to why women deserve the vote.
  • It is a disappointment that we did not have rights back then, its a good thing now we do ! 
  • In 1920, two years later, The Nineteenth Amendment is ratified. Its victory accomplished, NAWSA ceases to exist, but its organization becomes the nucleus of the League of Women Voters.
  • Now that women are enabled to vote they are guaranteed to do so from now on.
