On August 26, 1919, the Susan B. Anthony Amendment was officially became the 19th Amendment of the United States Constitution barring any state from denying the right to vote “on account of sex.” Some states granted full woman suffrage before the 19th Amendment, but many American women were first able to vote in 1920. Collin College is hosting several events to commemorate the centennial of the 19th Amendment and the Texan women who were part of the fight for voting rights.
