Virginia Louisa Minor (Birthday)

Join us in commemorating the birthday of Virginia Louisa Minor, born in 1824. Virginia was the plaintiff in the Minor v. Happersett case that was unsuccessful in arguing that the 14th Amendment gave women the right to vote.

The Supreme Court of the US (SCOTUS) in 1874 ruled in a unanimous decision that the 14th Amendment did not guarantee women the right to vote.

The 19th Amendment overruled Minor v. Happersett by prohibiting discrimination in voting rights based on sex. #VotingRights
