In 1917, New Yorkers elected to add a women’s suffrage amendment to the state constitution, allowing them the vote. The win was a triumph for the women of New York. Radical changes taking place in American society at that time saw them pushing for equal rights, and the right to vote in national elections. The persistent efforts of the suffrage movement finally brought about the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920, allowing all women to vote.
