August 26th marks the resolution of the 19th amendment to the constitution. The 19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guaranteed women the right to vote. Often referred to as the Susan B. Anthony amendment, the 19th Amendment was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919 by a vote of 56 to 25 in the Senate; ratified by the necessary 36 states (with Tennessee as the last state to vote for passage on August 18, 1920); and proclaimed as part of the Constitution of the United States on August 26, 1920.
