Over the course of history women have been denied many rights but we’ve fought for equality not just for ourselves but for others as well. One issue of particular importance in this election year is the right to vote. The women’s suffrage movement in the U.S. lasted over 70 years and was led by some amazing women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott and Susan B. Anthony. Thanks to their struggle women are able to vote. Do not take their victory for granted this November, get out there and vote. They, along with many others, paved the way for the many successful women we have today.
Almost a century later we are still fighting for equality. Equality in pay, reproductive rights, violence against women, education, and many other topics continue to be a struggle. Throughout history we’ve seen women stand up and fight and during the month of March we honor those women. Women continue to make history every day.
