The 19th Amendment to the Constitution was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919. A little over a year later, on August 18, 1920, it was ratified.  Seneca Falls, NY, home to the Women’s Rights National Historical Park, was the site of the First Women’s Rights Convention on July 19, 1848. If your summer plans don’t include a trip to Seneca Falls, we have some eBooks you may find interesting The 19th Amendment by Laura Loria, and Women’s Suffrage by Seth Lynch.  Civil rights and equality continue to be in the news. Happily, “We the People” have some successes!
