It's been 100 years since women have had the right to vote — an incredibly short amount of time according to late-night comic John Oliver, who says that women should have been voting at least longer than Kirk Douglas has been alive. He's 102. 

But it took until June 4, 1919 for Congress to pass the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, and another year for women to actually get the opportunity to exercise the right. 

Comic Bill Maher marked last week's anniversary by praising the amendment's passage and panning politicians who have an even longer way to go when it comes to their treatment of women. Take a look at today's Best of Late Night, above, to see what he had to say about the GOP, and Democratic candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden. 

 And Oliver takes a look an amendment that has yet to pass, the ERA.
