the 19th Amendment

I've been trying to think of away to present this for awhile now but have come up somewhat uninspired. So I will just remind you that voting day is November 4th...that is next Tuesday. Find your voting location here.

Please educate yourself & go vote. Let's not forget that women's suffrage did not even exist in the United States until less than 90 years ago! If for no other reason than we haven't always had the right & many people in the world are still fighting for their right – go vote!

Oh, and kudos to Annie who had to drive almost 2.5 hours round-trip just to register in Utah!

I believe that my generation of women was the first to come of age with most of us believing that the world would be fair to us.

But when I realized that I didn't know how my freedom happened I set out on a journey of discovery and I am now strengthened by the inspiration of countless suffragettes.

Can you even imagine being a woman and NOT being able to vote?

Thanks to the suffragettes, America has women voters and wide range of women candidates, and we are a better country for it! Women have voices and choices! Just like men.

But few people know ALL of the suffering that our suffragettes had to go through, and what life was REALLY like for women.
