August 26, 1920 - Women's Suffrage Victory - Nineteenth Amendment Becomes Law:
"August 26, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution became law, and women could vote in the fall elections, including in the Presidential election"

I was gonna post this whole thing but i figured i'd just post a teeny tiny part and if you want to read about it you can IF you don't know about it you should.
Not sure if any of you have seen the HBO movie Iron-Jawed Angels it's about the fight for women's right to vote. If you haven't seen it you should it's a GREAT movie. Every woman should know what these women did for us.
Don't let these women down remember to vote in this upcoming election. It's sooo important not to squander the right these women fought so hard and long for.

I meant to post something about this earlier but I got to doing other things.

True...I find that older women are more appreciative than younger women because when (if) they were in the workplace, things were really bad...

ITA with you. girls and even women my age don't understand how important some things are since "it's always been this way" for them why should they care about the past. In my opinion we need to learn about the past I love history. I am a history channel nerd. You need to learn about the past to keep from making the same mistakes all over again. I was never one who found history boring. It was always my fave subject. I guess most people don't find the past "omg why would i want to learn about things that happened years ago, that's so boring they didn't even have Mtv" interesting
