|The polling place is where we vote. Some citizens have voted early. |
Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2016!!
We have many women who have fought for the 19th amendment to allow women to vote. Troublemakers, they were called, stirring up the ladies to begin a movement for women's voting rights--Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Stanton, Margaret Sanger and more. The Women’s Rights Movement marks July 13, 1848 as its beginning with a gathering of four women for tea one afternoon. Truly there were other women interested in getting the vote, but this group begins the story.The 19th amendment became the law of the land in 1920.
|And that's the truth!!|
