Amending the U.S. Constitution is a long and difficult process. The 19th Amendment, which guarantees voting rights for women, was ratified on August 18, 1920, 42 years after it was first drafted by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and 72 years after the Declaration of Sentiments was drafted at Seneca Falls. This story is produced by NBC Learn in partnership with Pearson.
