What is one amendment of voting rights?
19th- giving the vote to women
This amendment removed from the states the power to determine voting qualifications based on gender?
One of the first and hallmark documents codifying the equal rights of women was the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The 19th Amendment conferred upon women the right to suffrage - voting. A proposed "Equal Rights Amendment," has been written to further clarify and make concrete gender based protections before the law.
The 15th Amendment of the US Constitution was ratified in 1870. The political forces behind this amendment were former anti slavery abolitionists and so-called Radical Republicans. The amendment stated that color, race, or ethic groups could not be prevented from voting. It was particularly aimed at disenfranchised Afro Americans who were denied voting rights in the South by clever laws that impeded Blacks from voting. The amendment was supported by Republican president Ulyesses S. Grant.
