Attorney and advocate for social justice Kelly Hyman looks back on the legal right of women in the United States of America to vote. The legal right of women in the United States of America to vote, U.S. women’s suffrage was established nationally in 1920. An attorney and a keen advocate for social justice and women’s rights based in Denver, Colorado, Kelly Hyman takes a closer look at the subject as she reveals more about women’s suffrage in the United States.
Indeed, in 1872, suffragist Susan B. Anthony, who would later become the head of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, succeeded in voting but was quickly arrested for the act. Found guilty in a widely publicized trial, the women’s suffrage movement gained fresh momentum as a result. “What ultimately followed was a decades-long campaign for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution,” Hyman reveals, “which would enfranchise women, and which began in earnest working for suffrage on a largely state-by-state basis.”
A graduate of UCLA and the University of Florida College of Law, Kelly Hyman is an attorney at Denver, Colorado-based Franklin D. Azar & Associates focused on class action lawsuits and mass tort litigation. A staunch advocate for social justice and women’s rights whose other interests include the law, current events, voting rights, and female empowerment, she is happily married to federal judge Paul G. Hyman, Jr.
