The passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granted women the right to vote. The amendment was first introduced in 1878. On August 26, 1920, the U.S. Congress adopted the 19th amendment, also known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment, giving women the right to vote. In 1971, the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as Women's Equality Day.
