Summary

With the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, those who had fought to accomplish women’s suffrage throughout the nation had high hopes for new women voters. “Let the politicians keep in mind the fact that the women’s vote is going to be a tremendous factor in this election,” warned one suffrage activist. Another predicted a “marked change because of women’s entrance into the electorate.”
