The men passed it for the women.

This guy sums up the argument as well as any I have heard...

Everything that’s ever been accomplished in the United States [...] let’s take the civil rights movement for example [...] eventually, the Civil Rights Act, it took a majority vote. It wasn’t minorities that got the Civil Rights Act. It was the majority that did it. [...] For instance, the women’s right to vote. The women didn’t vote on it. The men did. The men passed it for the women.

@ebrown p,
Well, he's right: if we had waited for women to vote for voting rights for women, we'd still be waiting.
