- Victory map 1919
The campaign to extend the vote to women had been fought for over 70 years and success finally came with the adoption of the 19th amendment in 1920. This battle had been waged state by state and as this map indicates, it was in the western portion of the country where women first gained the right to vote although there was ardent agitation from their sisters in the east. It was in the individual statehouses, controlled by male legislators, that their fate was finally determined. As the map indicates, women accepted partial suffrage before receiving the full vote with the Constitutional Amendment.
