The good men who wrote the Ammendment call it a "right". Had it been a right by birth, there would have been no question. Since the Constitution extended that right to women, it was a Constitutionally given right.<quoted text>
What is your point? That the Federal government extended the practice of voting to women?
That in and of itself shows that it is not a "right", it is a privilege.
But if it makes us feel better to call it a "right" so be it, doesn't change reality.
Not my term, theirs.
