Ending Women’s Suffrage

Women’s suffrage is the right for women to vote in political elections, ratified as The Nineteenth Amendment (Amendment XIX) to the United States Constitution in August of 1920. Since the events which led to Women’s suffrage in the U.S. occurred nearly a century ago, coupled with many people’s tendency to associate this unfamiliar word with “suffering”, joke petitions to ‘End Women’s Suffrage’ on many college campuses in the United States are often a great “success”.
