However, in the USA constitution, there are total 27 numbers of amendments and from 1 to 10 amendments are called “bill of right” but there are some other amendments which relayed with the right of U.S. citizen like Voting. The 19th amendment was developed for giving the right voting to the women and this amendment is also called women’s suffrage. Once women had no right to give a vote and by the 19th amendment, women got right.
The Nineteenth Amendment or 19th amendment (Amendment XIX) of the USA constitution is a very vital part. It seems that women got right of voting and they became important of the country and constitution. Once women had no right to participate in the vote an election but the 19th amendment prohibited to deny anyone of USA citizen to give the vote based on the sex. It meant both men and women can give a vote and they got equal right here. The amendment was permitted in the United States on August 18, 1920. the 1910s, Until the most states, disenfranchised women in 1910. This amendment was the result of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States. Once women fought for a long time for their right to vote. Women tried to get this right for a long time. As they had no right in voting, so they were not considered a respected citizen.
The 14th amendment was created to the right of the U.S citizen and in that amendment, US citizen got the right of protection by the law and this amendment was one of the reconstruction Amendments which was adopted on 9th July. But in that 14th amendment voting right was not clear. According to the 14th amendment, women had no right to give vote like any male voter. In 1875, a case filled named Minor v. Happersett based on the women right on voting. This case was held under United States Supreme Court. The Supreme Court did not give permission to register a woman as a voter. Because according to the state law, women were not permitted to give a vote. But women did not stop of urging the demand of the right of voting. Women’s suffrage in the United States continued and it formed national Women’s suffrage in the United States in the 1920s.
The 19th amendment became popular in 1878 in congress and it was introduced by Senator Aaron A. Sargent. This amendment was approved after 41 years by the congress and it held in 1919 and congress submitted the amendment to states for the approved. The final vote needed from Tennessee.

The text of the 19th amendment is “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.” After the successfully approved of the 19th amendment, the women’s suffrage movement in the United States stopped. The amendment was adopted in 1789 and left the limitations of suffrage indeterminate.
According to the United states constitution, the president is selected by the senators and representative and senators are chosen by the US citizens voters. The qualification of the voters is different in different in different states. At the time, all of the states became a protest against the right of the women’s vote qualification. They denied accepting the right of the women’s vote. In this case, New Jersey was exceptional. This states allowed first the right of the women vote. In that state, women got appreciated as a voter but in 1807 it cancelled. Women lost the chance to be a voter in the state New Jersey which allowed women as a voter.
While scattered movements and some organizations decided to give back the right to the women. In 1848, Seneca Falls Convention in New York started the American women’s rights movement. But this Suffrage was not very successful and the advancement was moving to the Civil War. In many states, the right of the woman as a voter was introduced and those women were ignored. The number of the women voters were few. Women did not get right respect as a voter in that election.
The women’s suffrage movement was established again after the Civil War and it held during the Reconstruction Era from 1865 to 1877. Then women’s rights leaders supported for the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth amendments which were called Reconstruction amendments. But in that amendment, there was not the thing for the women right as a voter. Women did not their proper right. By the Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment, there was a discrimination was notice into sex. In this Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment, if women became hinder for the men voter, the court punished them but any adult women could be deprived to give vote by adult male citizens.
The 14th amendment was created to the right of protection for the US citizen but there was no section where it was said that women voters were also protected. Women voters could be punished by the male voters if the women want to give a vote. Then many people were against this clause and second of the 14th amendment. Women could be happy with the 14th amendment. So, the women’s suffrage was established again and it continued to get right. This movement spread to different states women’s suffrage was established.
There were several attempts used for approving the right of the women as voters but one after another the attempt was failed. Then two rival organizations, the American Woman Suffrage Association which is shortly known as AWSA and the National Woman Suffrage Association which is shortly known as NWSA were formed in 1869. These two organization also working for the women’s right and they worked to be voter what was the old demand of all women in the United States. The 15th amendment was developed for the voter but there was nothing about the right of the women to be a voter. There was said about the banning on the discrimination based on the race.
The Nineteenth Amendment is similar to the Fifteenth Amendment excluding that the 19th amendment bans the rejection of suffrage because of sex (male and female) and in the 15th amendment was of “race, color, or previous condition of slavery. Many states approved the 19th amendment without any denied. Some of those states are Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Kansas, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Texas, Iowa, Missouri, etc.
