On July 14, 1917, suffragist Amelia Himes Walker was arrested for picketing outside the White House, and imprisoned for 60 days.
Three years later on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment was finally ratified. The Amendment guarantees women the right to vote. It states– “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. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.” Learn more about Amelia Himes Walker at http://goo.gl/3OloaV.
