YWCA Annual Fall Forum: Taking a Hard Look at Women’s Voting Rights Through a Racial Lens

On August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution officially granted white women the legal right to vote. However, women of color continued to face barriers to voting until the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
