Maryann Riker: "Women's suffrage in the United States, the legal right of women to vote in that country, was established over the course of several decades, first in various states and localities, sometimes on a limited basis, and then nationally in 1920. Two organizations were formed and organized to press their issue for the right to vote. Leading figures like Susan B. Anthony led the fight to have women treated as equals resulting in the passage of the 19th Amendment.
