2020 marked the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment which enfranchised women to vote in all US elections. Since the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848, many promoted, persuaded and oftentimes bravely fought about equal rights under United States law. The road to enfranchisement and equal rights has had many roadblocks including Jim Crow, racism and prejudice.
