There is plenty that women have done in mankind’s history. Big or small I am ready to cheer those who contribute to others. As a woman, I do have to take a minute and reflect of the beauty of my vote. August 26, 2015, marks the 95th anniversary of the admission of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the victory the Woman Suffrage Movement had worked so hard for. After 72 years of countless suffrage protests, petitions, speeches, pamphlets, and nights spent in jail, on August 26, 1920, women had won the right to vote and the Suffrage movement had finally accomplished its goal. Honestly, 95 years is not a very long time, but we have to admire 72 years of consistent relentless plight to get it done. Well worth it: Happy Women’s Equality Day!
I can’t wait to watch Suffragette, a new movie on this very historical event.
