Amendments 18 and 21 [electronic resource]: Prohibition and Repeal

The U.S. Constitution is the world's oldest written charter of government in continuous effect.

Amendment 19 [electronic resource]: Women's Right to Vote

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State on account of sex. The wording of the 19th Amendment is as unflinchingly clear as the obstacles to its passage-sexism; cultural, political, and social prejudices; and even timidity on the part of women reluctant to challenge the status quo. This program examines the struggle of the women's suffrage movement and its role in the eventual passage of the 19th Amendment. Legal experts discuss the amendment as a constitutional document and explain the changes it brought about in American life.
