    • Women’s rights and the 19th amendment
      By: Becky Lawlor
    • The 19th amendment prohibits each state and federal government from denying any citizen the right to vote because of that citizen’s sex.
    • The 19th amendment was officially ratified on August 20, 1920.
    • History of the 19th amendment
      On January 9, 1918, President Woodrow Wilson announced his support for the amendment.
      The next day, the House of Representatives passed the amendment, but the senate refused to debate the amendment until October.
      When the Senate voted on the amendment in October, it failed by 3 votes.
    • History Continued
      On May 21, 1919, the House of Representatives passed the amendment by a vote of 304 to 89 and the Senate voted on June 4, and passed it with a vote of 56 to 25
      The amendment was officially ratified on August 18.
    • Beginning in the 1800s, women organized, petitioned, and picketed to win the right to vote, but it took them decades to accomplish their purpose. Between 1878, when the amendment was first introduced in Congress, and August 18, 1920, when it was ratified, champions of voting rights for women worked tirelessly, but strategies for achieving their goal varied.
    • Women’s rights
      By the 1960s the movement for women’s rights was called “feminism” or “women’s liberation”
      Reformers wanted the same pay as men, equal rights in law, and the freedom to plan their families or not have children at all. Their efforts were given mixed results.
    • Reflection
      I thought this project was a new way of using technology for learning. I think that Glogster is a cool way to do a project, and I might even use it in the future. It has a very creative layout, although, I don’t think the website always works perfectly. I also thought that looking at the rubric, there was a lot that was supposed to be included in the glog. It was a lot to be expected in a small space.
