19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution Is Passed
The 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution is passed, giving women the right to vote. It will be signed into law on August 26th. While the Fraternity did not take a formal stand on the issue—either in support for or against women's suffrage—many individual members actively participated in the suffrage movement.
