Since its passage 100 years ago, the 19th Amendment has been the object of challenges, concerns, and celebration. What issues were and continued to be prevalent in other movements in which women are involved, beginning in the 19th century and continuing to today? And how did this 19th Amendment compare to and influence other movements for voting rights around the world?
