By the 1890s, four states had given women the right to vote and many states would follow. The women's rights movement was beginning to have an impact.
The 20th century saw more progress towards women's rights. In 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was passed; guaranteeing women the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony and other women's rights leaders were not alive to see it, but their work was directly responsible for the 19th Amendment.
