Women's Equality Day

How shall we celebrate? August 26 was designated Women's Equality Day in the US by Jimmy Carter when he was President. It marks the anniversary of the achievement of woman's suffrage with the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920. Yes, dear ones, women have been allowed to vote for less than 100 years in the US of A.

You might want to celebrate by reading this brief history of the long, 72-year struggle for women's voting rights. And you might want to resolve to vote. I know it's part of my religion.
