On this Day, June 4th. Women’s right to Vote was passed. This art piece of mine is an homage to that. Hanging at my gallery in Chelsea.
Another edition of my U.S. Constitutional Amendment Series. This is the 19th Amendment, which permitted women to vote. Women’s Suffrage. In 1920 this Amendment to the Constitution of the United States provides men and women with equal voting rights. The amendment states that the right of citizens to vote “shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” Although this equality was implied in the 14th Amendment (1868), most of the states continued to restrict or prohibit women’s suffrage.
