The 19th Amendment,
guaranteeing women the right to vote, is formally adopted into the U.S.
Constitution by proclamation of Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby (1869-1950). The
amendment was the culmination of more than 70 years of struggle by woman
suffragists. Its two sections read simply: «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» and «Congress shall have power to enforce this article
by appropriate legislation».
