The 19th Amendment was an incomplete victory. Black and white women fought hard for voting rights and doubled the number of eligible voters, but the amendment did not enfranchise all women, or even protect the rights of those women who could vote. A century later, women are still grappling with how to use the vote and their political power to expand civil rights, confront racial violence, improve maternal health, advance educational and employment opportunities, and secure reproductive rights. In her book, Formidable: American Women and the Fight for Equality: 1920-2020, Dr. Elisabeth Griffith recounts the roles of Black and White women as change agents and social justice activists and chronicles their efforts to advance sometimes competing causes.
