Minor v. Happersett 21 Wallace 162 (1875)
MINOR v. HAPPERSETT 21 Wallace 162 (1875)
morrison r. waite delivered the unanimous opinion of the Supreme Court holding that a woman, though a citizen of the United States and of the state in which she resides, had no right to vote as a privilege of national citizenship protected by the privileges and immunities clause of the fourteenth amendment. The laws of her state allowed only men to vote, and the amendment did not change that by making any new voters.
