GFR Zoom Gathering: When Women were ‘Granted’ the Right to Vote

Great Falls Rising invites you to a Zoom gathering to tell you about the final chapter in women’s 72-year struggle to win the vote.

After the 19th Amendment was approved by Congress and President Woodrow Wilson, it had to be ratified by 3/4 of the states to become law. At that time, the United States of America consisted of 48 states, so 36 state legislatures had to convene and vote to ratify. Tennessee became “the perfect 36th.”

In a cliffhanger with every imaginable twist and turn, the amendment was ratified by the Tennessee legislature on August 18, 1920. You probably know that. But the personalities, the politics, and the parliamentary procedure behind the scenes? Great stuff. Join us on Zoom on Wednesday, Sept. 8, at 6:30 p.m. when Mary Moe takes us behind the scenes of the three votes that won 27 million women the right to vote.
