Women of the ATA take a dip

ATA (Womens Auxilary Sevice) - During wartime women of the ATA provided an invaluable service to the RAF

"Women bring all voters into the world, Let Women Vote"

Feminist and revolutionary Qiu Jin was born in 1875 in China. She was vocal about women's rights and pressed for better access to education for women. At the time it was still customary for women to have their feet bound at the age of five, rendering women crippled and severely dependent on others. Qiu Jin encouraged women to resist oppression by their families and by the government, and to gain financial independence through education. She was beheaded by the authorities at the age of 31.

It's hard to believe women at one time fought for the right to vote and now many women just don't care. Women votes in the next Presidential election will make a difference.
