Hosted by Minnesota State Capitol
From the host:
In 1919, the US Congress passed the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote. Minnesota ratified the amendment in September, and by August of 1920, it was adopted by all states. On the 100th anniversary, take a special tour that focuses on Minnesota women who played significant roles in securing the right to vote.
