We appear before you this morning…to ask that you will, at your earliest
convenience, report to the House in favor of the submission of a Sixteenth
Amendment to the Legislatures of the several States, that shall prohibit the
disfranchisement of citizens of the United States on account of sex.
Arguing to amend the Constitution to allow women the right to vote, Anthony was finally given the floor sixteen years after the idea for women's suffrage was introduced in Congress. So those that were thinking, this was a little early, must now realize that indeed it was a little late.
Anthony addressed the House Committee for four days, but it would take 35 more years before Congress would approve women's suffrage. On June 4, 1919 the "Anthony Amendment" was finally approved. On August 18, 1920, the states ratified it as the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution. However what was originally proposed as the 16th Amendment from Anthony took so long to pass, it was now the 19th Amendment.
Unfortunately, Susan B. Anthony died in 1906 having never cast a vote and never seeing the fruits of her labor.
