What did the 19th Amendment do?
June 4 marked a victory in the fight for women’s rights.
One hundred years ago, on June 4, 1919, Congress passed a resolution in support of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. The North Dakota Legislature approved the amendment on Dec. 1, 1919. The resolution was finally ratified in August of 1920.
The Herald took to the streets on the day of the anniversary to see if the average person knows what the 19th Amendment did.
