39. You're joking, right?

Yes, the Constitution was amended to guarantee a black man's right to vote 55 years before it was amended to guarantee women's right to vote.

But here's the thing ...

Once women got the right to vote, white women were able to vote immediately, without restrictions or impediments. They did not have to fight for the next 100 years to actually exercise that right, they didn't have to have an Act of Congress passed in order for them to be able to vote and they weren't lynched, beaten, forced to take literacy tests, pay poll taxes, run of town when they tried to register and endure countless other indignities and threats to their lives. Black men and black women did.

In fact, black men and women are STILL fighting for that right that white women take for granted.
