On May 21, 1919, U.S. Representative James R. Mann, a Republican from Illinois and chairman of the Suffrage Committee, proposed the House resolution to approve the Susan Anthony Amendment granting women the right to vote. The measure passed the House 304 to 89—a full 42 votes above the required two-thirds majority.

Two weeks later, on June 4, 1919, the U.S. Senate passed the 19th Amendment by two votes over its two-thirds required majority, 56-25. The amendment was then sent to the states for ratification.

Within six days of the ratification cycle, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin each ratified the amendment. Kansas, New York and Ohio followed on June 16, 1919. By March of the following year, a total of 35 states had approved the amendment, one state shy of the two-thirds required for ratification.


Southern states were adamantly opposed to the amendment, however, and seven of them—Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, South Carolina and Virginia—had already rejected it before Tennessee’s vote on August 18, 1920. It was up to Tennessee to tip the scale for woman suffrage.

The outlook appeared bleak, given the outcomes in other Southern states and given the position of Tennessee’s state legislators in their 48-48 tie. The state’s decision came down to 23-year-old Representative Harry T. Burn, a Republican from McMinn County, to cast the deciding vote.

Although Burn opposed the amendment, his mother convinced him to approve it. Mrs. Burn reportedly wrote to her son: “Don’t forget to be a good boy and help Mrs. Catt put the ‘rat’ in ratification.”

With Burn’s vote, the 19th Amendment was fully ratified.

When Did Women Get the Right to Vote?

On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was certified by U.S. Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby, and women finally achieved the long-sought right to vote throughout the United States.

I actually knew that. A Youtube channel I watch (PBS Eons) promo'd a video they did on ground sloths (the giant extinct sloths) in honour of the day.

Today is Election Day in Canada. Not sure if that's something to celebrate or dread.confused1 Guess we'll find out tonight when the results come in.

It's International Women's Day today, I'm thinking of all the women in my life who have inspired me, helped me, criticised me, befriended me, laughed and cried with me, and the list could go on and on.

But I'm also thinking of all young women and girls, the challenges they face in the world, and the strengths they have and will develop. They, like all of us, are facing and will continue to face challenges in life, but there are many of them who are being nurtured and who KNOW their worth! Thinking of my nieces and young girls I know, they are inspiring and wonderful.

Have a grand celebration of International Women's Day everyone.

I always remember this day for an important reason. My mother died on the 8th of March in 2006. She will never be forgotten and neither will this day.
