Yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th amendment into the United States Constitution, granting women the right they had been fighting for for over 75 years – the right to vote.

Secretary of State, Colby Bainbridge, certified the amendment from his home in Washington, D.C., and by that afternoon the head of the National American Suffrage Association, Carrie Chapman Catt, was received at the White House by President Woodrow Wilson and First Lady Edith Wilson.
