To Vote or Not To Vote
The 19th Amendment, the right for women to vote was passed in 1919. Women were not wanted as a part of the presidential vote because, politics were thought of as corrupt and that would just mean more corruption. Men believed that if white women had the right to vote then next would come black women. Lastly women at the time were thought of as the person who does the cleaning and child raising not politics or business situations.
The solutions to being able to vote was protesting out in front of the white house in time of war which had them arrested. Finally after the muckrakers put in political cartoons against Government the 19th Amendment was passed.
