Jeannette Rankin was the first woman elected to U.S. Congress. At the time when Rankin was elected to the United States Congress, female participation in politics was unheard of. Rankin’s entry into politics was a gradual process. She started off as a social worker, lobbying for women suffrage movement. It was due to her tireless efforts that the Nineteenth Amendment was passed which secured women the right the vote across America. Though the feat was a remarkable achievement in Rankin’s political career, it was her pacifist foreign policy that defined much of her congressional terms. Rankin became the only member of the Congress to vote against the US entry into World War I and World War II. While her opposition for World War I received support from 49 other Congresspersons, her pacifism against World War II raised outrage as she was the only person to vote against war. Rankin’s adamant pacifist stance was noteworthy. Though her commitment towards anti-war sentiments was largely ridiculed for much of her life, it was only towards the end that she became an inspiration for numerous other women activists and pacifists.
