Also this year:

– On February 26, Congress passes the 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which extends voting rights to Black men and is ratified a year later.

– In May, the women’s suffrage movement splits over the 15th amendment because it excludes women’s right to vote.


In October 2019, #MeToo movement founders Tarana Burke, Fatima Goss Graves, Ai-jen Poo and Mónica Ramírez started the hashtag, #MeTooVoter, a campaign to support a cross-cutting gender justice agenda that prioritizes policies and reforms to end sexual violence and harassment.
