My last post was about heroines, too. The Suffragettes were the real-life version.
My sister sent me an email today about why women vote. Not because its an inalienable right, but because a few of our predecessors worked tirelessly to make us independent by giving us a simple thing -- the right to vote.
It's important to remember that not so long ago women belonged to either their father or husband. The grandmothers and great-grandmothers of women eligible to vote today earned those rights. It took courage to bring about change, and the willingness to face the consequences. While I cannot forward the message I received, I found an on line version minus the photographs. Please go read this article about the 'Night of Terror.' Then be sure to vote in November.
