The Women's suffrage movement began in the United States in 1848 at the Seneca Falls Convention to discuss the law barring women from voting based on their gender. In 1869, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton formed the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA), which became the foremost organization lobbying for suffrage. The suffrage movement merged with other groups and movements to equalize the rights of all citizens. In 1920, Congress passed the 19th Amendment which stated, "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex."
