Votes for women were first seriously proposed in the United States in July, 1848, at the Seneca Falls Woman's Rights Convention organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton andLucretia Mott. One woman who attended that convention was Charlotte Woodward. She was nineteen at the time. In 1920, when women finally won the vote throughout the nation, Charlotte Woodward was the only participant in the 1848 Convention who was still alive to cast her vote. Eighty-one years old, she cast her vote proudly.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Lucretia Mott were leaders in the suffragette movement. They began as abolitionists, but when they were not allowed to participate in a abolitionist convention because they were women, they began the fight for women's equality. In fact, Stanton opposed the ratification of the 14th and 15th amendments because she was opposed to the idea of giving voting rights to black men without also giving voting rights to women. In 1916, the National Women's Party, a suffragette organization, was founded by Alice Paul and Lucy Burns. In 1918, President Woodrow Wilson announced his support for women's right to vote, and after 2 more years of fighting, women got the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th amendment on August 18, 1920.

In Canada, five women, known as the Famous Five, led the battle for suffrage. Perhaps best remembered is Nellie McClung.
