The issue of the vote resurfaced during Reconstruction. The Fifteenth Amendment to the Constitution proposed granting the right to vote to African American males. Many female suffragists at the time were outraged. They simply could not believe that those who suffered years of bondage would be enfranchised before America's women.

Bymost states west of Mississippi had granted full suffrage rights to women. States of the Midwest at least permitted women to vote in Presidential elections. But the Northeast and the South were steadfast in opposition.
Catt knew that to ratify a national amendment, NAWSA would have to win a state in each of these key regions. Once cracks were made, the dam would surely burst. InNew York and Arkansas permitted women to vote, and momentum shifted toward suffrage.
NAWSA supported the war effort throughout the ratification process, and the prominent positions women held no doubt resulted in increased support. On August 26,the Nineteenth Amendment became the supreme law of the land, and the long struggle for voting rights was over.That plot’s pretty workable, but Jamal feels like a chosen one.
