Did You Know?
While many American women-including Jack Kennedy’s grandmother, Mary Kennedy-supported woman’s suffrage, the US Constitution didn’t extend the vote to women until 1920. Years later, in 1963, Jack signed a Civil Rights Bill to guarantee every American’s right to participate fully in civic life.
