    In the past, in America, women wanted to win the right to vote. But it required a lengthy and difficult struggle during decades of agitation and protest.
    In 1800, women organized petitions for this goal but the amendment was introduced 78 years later in the Congress. Some time later, in 1912, 9 western states adopted women’s suffrage while New York only adopted this suffrage in 1917.

    On May 21st,1919, the House of Representatives passed the amendment, and 2 weeks later the Senate followed. Tennessee became the 36th state to adopt the admendment. State’s secretary named Bainbridg Colby, certified the ratification on August 26th, 1920.
