I Have to Make a Video About the Amendments to the Constitution, What Would U Suggest?
I'm not sure about the music video, it does sound like it would be harder to do.
I was picturing a metaphor of a commuter train. You know that the first 10 amendments were ratified only 3 and a half years after the constitution was ratified, so they are like the nearer suburbs. Then the towns (amendments) come further apart, until you finally reach the 27th amendment 201 years after the first 10 were ratified.

Does anyone know of any good court cases for the Women's Suffrage Amendment?
One of the landmark battles was over voting rights. Susan B. Anthony openly voted in an election (google her for dates). The judge refused to let the case come to trial because he did not want to set precedent.
What most people don't realize is Susan B. did this with her family's encouragement. There was a family meeting before she did it. They knew she'd go to jail and thought the cause justified it. Sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe and she did.
women got the right to vote in what year & what was the amendment?
As it turns out, some women had the right the vote from the year 1784, the year America won the Revolution.
They had it from the beginning in New Jersey, and had it taken away in 1815. There was a seriously ethically questionable election in New Jersey, and the Governor at the time decided the best way to hide it was to scapegoat women voters. They took away their right to vote.
In 1920, Congress passed the Amendment (19th) that gave women the right to vote all over the country.
The 19th Amendment. What is the exact wording of the two-sentence amendment? When was it signed and dated?
The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution reads in full as follows:
Section 1. 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.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this Article by appropriate legislation.
The amendment was proposed to the States by the Sixty-Sixth Congress on June 4, 1919, was ratified by three-fourths of the States, and proclaimed in force on August 26, 1920.
How does the 19th amendment affect current society.
The 19th amendment is the amendment that said that women had a right to vote and have jobs like men. and some people(mostly men who are old fashioned or women) don't think that women can do things. for example when a guy says o your just a lady you cant hit me with a chance harder then me or men are stronger and have more rights then you. that is the best example i can give. i hope ive helped in a way.
can amendments repeal previous amendments*URGENT*?
There aren't any examples as clear as the 21st repealing the 18th, but:
Amendment 14 sets the standard that "male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age"
should be allowed to vote (unless the state not allowing it wants to lose representation).
The 19th and 26th amendments allow women and persons 18 years old, respectively, to vote. This loosens, and in effect, repeals the previous standard defined by the Constitution.
How did Woodrow Wilson support the 19th amendment?
On November 15, 1917, thirty-three womens rights activists, arrested for picketing in front of the White House, were transferred to the Occoquan Workhouse in Virginia. These courageous suffragettes suffered unspeakable brutalities that included beatings, humiliation, forced-feeding, and trauma. This became the National Womens Partys Night of Terror. Media publicity of the sordid event, according to New York Times coverage, helped persuade President Woodrow Wilson, a long-time opponent of womens suffrage, to support the 19th Amendment
What are some reasons why the 19th amendment affected the growth of the Federal Government?
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.
Think about how many were elevated from 2nd class citizen to 1st class citizen. How many more had a voice in the workings of the government. How many more the government had to begin working for in order to get their vote. How many more the government had to keep track of for a number of reasons.
What year were women allowed to vote inthe U.S?
It was in 1920 ,, Wow that seems so long ago, It was about the same time they decided to start getting bob- hair cuts, which was a no no. they also started smoking in public.

The 17th, 19th, 24th, and 26th Amendments.
The 17th gave voters the right to directly elect the US Senators.
The 19th gave women the equal right to vote.
The 24th prevented poll taxes as a requisite for voting in federal elections.
The 26th gave 18-to-20-year-olds the equal right to vote.

Can an Amendment outlaw the repeal of itself or another amendment?
In order to repeal a constitutional amendment they would have to pass a new amendment to repeal it and they would need 2/3rds of the House and 2/3rds of the Senate to pass it and then it has to be ratified by three-fourths of the States (38 out of the 50 states). I don't see any way civil rights would ever be repealed and lets say it was, the supreme court would end up ruling it unconstitutional anyway
Which of the following happened during the Civil War?
B. Homestead Act passage
The Homestead Act is a piece of U.S. legislation which gave 160 acres,i.e. one quarter of a section of a township of undeveloped land in the western United States, to any family head provided he lived on it for five years, or allowed the family head to buy it for $1.25 per acre after six months. The act was signed into law by President Lincoln on May 20, 1862. The first claim under the Homestead Act was made for a farm in Nebraska on January 1, 1863.
The power to make Amendments?
It's important because times, as well as people's attitudes, change. Adding Ammendments is a way to deal with those changes.
How they pertain to me -- I can vote because of the 19th amendment. Although casting a vote that doesn't count isn't very valuable, but that's another topic (Electoral College.)
No matter where you go in the world, there is always someone taking advantage of some right, law, rule, person, whatever. Jerks abound.
Can women really vote in the US?
"1) The equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution does not protect against discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation, it only protects men of minority ethnicities or races. 2) Therefore, women are not US citizens and therefore should not have the right to vote."
There is a flaw in logic here. The first statement doesn't not imply the second.
Just because the Constitution doesn't explicitly guarantee women citizenship, doesn't mean American society cannot go ahead and give them citizenship.
What happens when a state does not ratifies?
All states do not have to ratify or vote for an Amendment, but if it passes, then all have to obey the Constitution and its Amendments.
When 39 states voted to add the 19th Amendment there were only 48 states.
Federal Law and the Constitution must be obeyed by all of the States, so the States that did not ratify or vote for this Amendment had to allow women to vote, regardless their State's wishes.
What branch of government can propose amendments and overrule judicial decisions?
Actually, either the House or the Senate can propose Constitutional amendments. An amendment has to pass both houses before going on to the states.
As far as overriding judicial decisions, usually that's reserved for higher courts (judicial). The only way that one of the other branches can override a judicial decision (in effect) is to pass a new law.
Think about Roe v. Wade- neither the legislature nor the executive can overturn the Supreme Court decision. It would take another Supreme Court ruling to negate the original decision.

whats law or laws were enforced in the 19th amendment of the U.S.A.
First, laws are not "enforced" in the amendments to the U.S. Constitution, but rather authorized or prohibited. Second, Congress (and state-level legislatures) then passes laws to implement the constitutional authorizations and the justice department (agency of the executive branch) decides which laws to enforce.
The XIX Amendment dealt with the right of women to vote, and specifically pre-empts state laws as well. Look up the link and decide what it means.
Why did the Trump campaign add repealing the 19th amendment to the platform? Shouldn't this be bigger news?
He never said that. I wouldn't be mad if he did it. Because women never earned the right to vote. Men had to fight in England during ww1 to get the right to vote. What about them before that? Women even did that white feather thing which caused quite a few suicides.
When women do something amazing that deserves a voice in politics then all be it, they can earn that right. They don't deserve the right to vote just off feeling guilty they don't have it. Honestly.
who was the first women to vote after the 19th amendment was made?
On August 31, 1920, five days after the 19th amendment was signed into law, Hannibal, Missouri, held a special election to fill the seat of an alderman who had resigned.
At 7 a.m., despite pouring rain, Mrs. Marie Ruoff Byrum, wife of Morris Byrum and daughter-in-law of Democratic committeeman Lacy Byrum, cast her ballot in the first ward. She thus became the first woman to vote in the state of Missouri and the first woman to vote in the United States under the 19th, or Suffrage, Amendment.

This is just a tip: Do as much of your own work as possible. Also, when asking questions on Yahoo! Answers, break up your questions. This question would require about 27 sentences, a lot of work for people who are answering in their free time. A better way to do this would be to do as much as possible yourself and then only ask about what you don't know such as: Summarize the 9th and 23rd Amendments. You would be likely to get an answer for this
