Less than 100 years ago women in the USA weren't allowed to vote!
|Freedom Rider, US Woman's Suffrage movement.|
Women’s suffrage at the state level was first granted by Wyoming in 1869. The most receptive region of the country to equal suffrage was the West. As women gained the right to vote in school and municipal elections, some state governments allowed them to vote in national elections. But, in general, women’s suffrage was denied in national elections until the beginning of the Roaring Twenties.
