Just Wondering…

On this day in 1919 the US Congress passed the 19th Amendment – providing women’s suffrage.

I wonder what the vote was. I wonder how may considered the idea of women voting too progressive. I wonder if some in Congress refused to vote to give women the right to vote out of fear for what it would do to their reelection chances the following year.

Just wondering.
