Women's Suffrage

It is shocking to me that women got the right to vote only 96 years ago!  For everything this country stands for - you think Women would have the right to vote right away!  The Suffrage Movement began in 1848 at the Seneca Falls Convention.  It took 79 years of blood, sweat, and tears to get the right to vote!  Women worked so tiredly so all Women could have the right to vote! 
By the start of the 20th Century Women were fighting so hard they were being beaten, starved, imprisoned, and tortured for the right to vote!  So especially to the ladies we MUST vote!  We are standing on the shoulders of courageous women who demanded change!  We owe them voting - they died so we could!
