BELLE FLIGELMAN WINESTINE
EDITOR’S NOTE: This year is the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment, which guarantees all american women the right to vote. Beginning in the 1800s, women wrote letters, organized, petitioned, picketed, marched, lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to win the right to vote, which many regarded as a radical change in the U.S. Constitution. Few of them lived to see the final victory, but the 19th Amendment was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920.
