Ken Burns Argues One Vote Can Change History        Video        The New York Times        15 January 2020

 

Harnessing the power of its new Democratic majority,

the Virginia legislature is poised to vote this week

to become the 38th of the 38 states

needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment,

which would make women’s rights explicit in the Constitution.

 

In the video Op-Ed above,

the filmmaker Ken Burns compares this historic moment

with the ratification of the 19th Amendment,

which granted women the right to vote 100 years ago.

19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

Women's Right to Vote        USA        1920

 

"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."

 

The amendment guarantees

all American women the right to vote.

 

Achieving this milestone

required a lengthy and difficult struggle;

victory took decades of agitation and protest.

 

Beginning in the mid-19th century,

several generations

of woman suffrage supporters

lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied,

and practiced civil disobedience to achieve

what many Americans considered

a radical change of the Constitution.

 

Few early supporters

lived to see final victory in 1920.
