1. "Sufferin' 'til Suffrage" is a Schoolhouse Rock! segment, featuring a song of the same title written by Tom Yohe and music by Bob Dorough. The segment debuted in 1976 as part of "America Rock", the third season of the Schoolhouse Rock series. The song was performed by Essra Mohawk. The lyrics are about Woman suffrage in the United States which was achieved gradually, at state and local levels, during the 19th Century and early 20th Century, culminating in 1920 with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which provided: "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."
