Expanding voting rights.

Hey my name is Liza P. I’m in Mr. Sals period six twentieth century class. There was once a time when women couldn’t vote, nor African Americans, they fought for the right, and by the 1920’s they got it. In 1890 women had won partial suffrage in 19 states, but in most of those states women couldnt even vote at local elections. State after state in the 1890’s in the south revised its constitution and laws to prevent African Americans from voting. The National American Woman Suffrage Association helped. They helped by there association growing from 13,000 members in 1893 to 75,000 members in 1910. By 1912, 9 states, all west of the Mississippi River, allowed women to vote in all elections. Yes it worked, because they got more members in there association.
