19th Amendment Anniversary
Today marks the 91st anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. Let us never forget the long battle that courageous women like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton fought so that women are able to have the same voting rights as their peers. The suffrage that generations of women endured should serve as a reminder to future generations that a person’s goals, no matter how lofty or extreme, are always within reach.
