The equal suffrage movement of women demanding the right to vote developed slowly in South Carolina. This parade in Aiken on January 26, 1917, claimed to be "The First Suffrage Parade in South Carolina." The 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was adopted in 1920, stating that "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."
