在主张通过修改个别州的法律来实现其目标和目的的人士之间有很大的差距之后，通过了修正案(Miller, 1287)。从1838年开始，肯塔基州授权妇女在学校选举中投票，后来其他几个州也效仿了这一做法。堪萨斯在1887年给予妇女在市政选举中无限的投票权。然而，直到1869年，怀俄明的领土才根据妇女享有与男子平等选举权的权利，一项值得注意的胜利才被拥护者登记在案(Aidt和Bianca, 394)。妇女投票权第19修正案包括两个主要部分:
There had been adoption of the amendment after a major campaign had been held by the advocates with large disparity to attain their goals and objectives by modifying the laws of individual state (Miller, 1287). Beginning in the year 1838, women had been authorized by Kentucky for voting in the elections of school and its action had been copied later by several other States. Kansas in the year 1887 granted unlimited rights to women for voting in the elections of municipality. However, not until the year 1869, when the Territory of Wyoming had been according the rights of women suffrage equality with men, a notable victory had been registered by the advocates (Aidt and Bianca, 394). Two main sections had been included in the 19th amendment of Women Suffrage:
SECTION 1:“The right of the citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”
SECTION 2:“Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”
The role played by women along with their social, economic and political opportunities in the society of America faced a major shift from the era of pre- Revolutionary War in the early years of 19th century. In the years that lead up to the Revolution of America, women had been seen as subordinate to men and therefore, had been subjected to the regulations and law imposed on them by male. There was an expectation for them to be marrying, raising families and performing the duties of diligent mothers and wives.
Due to the organization of society dominated by male, more often, women did not seem to be having lawful rights, like the ability of voting or owning property. However, with the progressing years to Reconstruction and the Civil War, the political, economic and social roles played by women started dealing with major change (Miller, 1287). Even though the economic and social changes introduced major rights for women, political changes introduced by several reform movements dealt with significant shift as pertained to the rights of women, like education, temperance, suffrage and abolition.
As a result of these economic and societal changes, reform movements had been gaining major momentum in the mid period of 1800s, and hence, the political change for introducing female rights of voting had been initiated after a number of on and offs in the scenario (Aidt and Bianca, 392).
