Meet the Voters
American women lacked the right to vote until August 18, 1920, when the final state ratified the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In the 2016 election, thousands of women born before that date proudly cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton, the candidate they hoped would become our first woman president. Witnesses to a century of history, these voters are an essential reminder of our nation’s possibilities as we strive to form a more perfect union.
