  • C. to grant women the right to vote

    The women’s suffrage movement advocated for the social, civil and religious rights of women, especially the right to vote. In the U.S., the movement was launched in the Seneca Falls Convention (1848), the first women’s rights convention in the United States. Women fought for almost a century to that purpose until the 19th Amendment to the Constitution finally gave them their right to vote in 1920.
