Suffragette City 100 words on a Wednesday



It was a mere 95 years ago today that women got the right to vote. Men who owned property were voting for 226 years. African American men got the right to vote by 1869.  Those numbers speak for themselves. Susan B Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, two of my all time heroes, spent their lives fighting for this right and died not seeing it become law. But their work mattered and eventually it did become law.  I honor them both today. Thank you. Brush up on Women’s history and teach it loud and proud to your children. This stuff matters.
