The 19th Amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. Around the mid-nineteenth century, supporters of women's suffrage began a decades-long campaign to achieve what many considered to be a radical change to the U.S. Constitution. The suffragists marched, lobbied, lectured, wrote essays and practiced acts of civil disobedience. Congress passed the 19th Amendment on June 4, 1919 and ratified it on August 18, 1920.
