  • Susan B. Anthony

    Women split over the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, which granted equal rights including the right to vote to African American men, but excluded women.
  • Illegal Voting

    Susan B. Anthony and other women tested that question by attempting to vote at least 150 times in 10 states and District of Columbia.
  • Carry nation and the WCTU

    The WCTU reform activities, like those of the settlement house movement, provided women with expanded public roles, which they used to justify giving women voting rights.
  • NAWSA Formed

    The Nation American Woman Suffrage Association feared that women would vote in support to prohibition, while the textile industry worried that women would vote for restrictions on child labor. Many men simply feared the changing role of women in society.
  • Carrie Chapman Catt nad New NAWSA Tactics

    Catt returned to NAWSA after organizing New York’s Women Suffrage Party, with the five tactics: painstaking organization, close ties between local, state and national workers, wide base support, cautious lobbying, and ladylike behavior.
  • 19th Amendment

    Granting the women the right to vote.
