Note: 1912 isn't the date of the Amendment, it was the year that Alice Paul really got things going:
"In 1912 Alice Paul met up with her friend, Lucy Burns, and they took over the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) Congressional Committee, trying to get a constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote. By 1916, she formed the National Woman's Party (NWP) that demanded a constitutional amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote. "
A Special Thank You to these
