I'm a student in high school doing a project on the 19th amendment. I'm researching how things would have been different if the 19th amendment was never ratified. Could you send me any information of any major changes that came about after the ratification of the 19th amendment. Sincerely, Zoraida

I hope I'm correct in remembering that the 19th Amendment was the right for women to vote. If yes, then the most obvious difference would be that women wouldn't be full citizens, because they wouldn't have the access that full citizens deserved. Further down the road, the consequences of women winning the vote has led to women's political participation--including a gender gap that has emerged in the past five presidential elections. This participation as voters means that women are speaking up for what they believe in--and furthermore, ensuring that when politicians represent their citizens that includes representing female citizens.
