Women’s Equality Day was yesterday, celebrating the anniversary of the day women earned the right to vote back on August 26, 1920. You know who we have to thank for that? These women!
A leader in the suffragist movement, Susan fought hard for women’s rights as well as the abolition of slavery.
Antoinette was a co-founder of the American Woman Suffrage Association!
Lillian served as the President of the New Jersey Woman Suffrage Association and later ran for Congress!
True, we have come a long way from organizing petitions and handing out leaflets to promote the right to vote for women. However, this infographic from Time.com shows we still have a ways to go, especially with getting more women involved in government. So let’s encourage each other, fellow ladies, and those young women coming up after us to pursue our dreams, reach for the stars, and know that we can be absolutely ANYTHING we want to be and make a difference for the better in this world!
