#2980 - 32¢ Women's Suffrage

Order Pre-cut Mounts 41 x 31 mm - 40 per pack

Beginning in the late 1800s, by the turn of the 20th Century, American women were vocally demanding equal rights, including the right to vote in public elections. Women's Suffrage became a national issue due to the tenacious efforts of Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, and Julia Ward Howe; but it was not until World War I broke out and President Wilson declared it "a war for democracy" that Women's Suffrage would finally receive the national focus it needed. After being defeated in 1915, 1918 and 1919, it would not be until 1920 that the 19th Amendment, allowing women the right to vote in public elections, was passed by both House and Senate.
