On August 26th in 1920–Everything Changed

Photo: ON THIS DAY 92 YEARS AGO: The 19th amendment is certified and women win the right to vote

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..
