History of Women's Suffrage In California
Compiled by Bonnie Martland
     It is common knowledge that in 2020 we are celebrating the one hundredth anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution which in effect gave women in this country the right to vote. Actually, it said that the right to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of a person's sex. What may not be such common knowledge is that some women in the United states had the right to vote before the ratification of the amendment. Fifteen states, all notably in the west, had granted women the right to vote before its passage.
