Women Celebrate Passing of 19th Amendment - Aug. 26, 1920 | Periscope
By the 1890s, some states began giving women the right to vote. Though Susan and her followers were making progress, she knew there was a lot of work to be done. Before she died in 1906 she said:
There is so much yet to be done, I see so many things I would like to do and say, but I must leave it for the younger generation. We old fighters have prepared the way.
The suffrage movement continued onward, inspired by Susan's determination to publicly defend her right to vote. The 19th Amendment granting all women the right to vote was eventually passed in 1920.
