In the United States, women got the right to vote in 1920. The women's suffrage movement started in the 19th century, with the 1848 Declaration of Sentiments, which stated that all men and women were created equal, serving as a major step. An organized effort to secure women’s right to vote took hold over the second half of the 19th century, spanning organizations and generations of supporters. It was a tough fight, but on August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women the right to vote in America.
