Happy Tuesday!! It’s Election Day and I am getting ready to head to the polls and cast my vote. It’s a privilege that I do not take for granted. I am reminded of the women of the past who sacrificed themselves to make this a reality and with the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920 after almost a century of speeches, petitions and marches, women were granted the right to vote.
I think it’s important to take a moment and remember those who helped make this a reality and remind ourselves how lucky we are that they fought for us.
Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906)
Alice Paul (1885-1977)
Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902)
Lucy Stone (1818-1893)
Ida B. Wells (1862-1931)
Frances E.W. Harper (1825–1911)
Mary Church Terrell (1863-1954)
Thank you for fighting, for having the courage to take a stand, for believing you could make a difference and for making history.
No election is too small. Every vote matters. Every vote counts!
