My grandmothers, great-aunts, those who voted for this amendment, and those who urged them to do so say “You’re welcome”—and I say to them: “thank you”.
The Right of Women to Vote…one of the greatest campaigns ever mounted. Emmeline Pankhurst and all of the ladies in UK and America did a wonderful job and won us the right to vote and to be heard and to become people and not chattels.
Now I wonder why so many women say that they ‘ cannot be bothered ‘ to vote when people , men and women gave their liberty and their lives to give us the opportunity to be free..
I know. I cannot even imagine me skipping out on voting. Gosh—I do love it so!
This is one reason why I always vote!
me too! We had a primary election here yesterday.
