It's hard to believe that not too long ago, women weren't allowed to vote in the US. Things have changed in the US and people belonging to minority groups worked hard to fight for the rights that I have today. I think it is important to exercise your right to vote and I believe it is my duty as a citizen to stay informed with what is going on in the government.

Suffragettes ~ 1911 Jordan is at Vassar when women are aloud to vote for the first time in the USA unfortunetrlly Daisy has a meltdown after seeing Gatsby bord a ship to france in New York harber where he dosent even aknowlage her . so basically Jordan has to spend all night in her dorm roon with Daisy whose in histerics instead of being amungst the woman whom would make history by casting their ballets for the first time
1911, my great aunt was a suffragette, and the first woman to vote in her parish. Go Girl!!
Suffragettes ~ 1911 - true grit and grace...Bless every woman who fought for women's rights and winning the women's right to vote!
I think every woman who is against feminism shouldn't vote. Because it is thanks to feminism women can vote today. At the time the photo was taken, feminists were called suffragettes...
The World has some shameful history as in the picture shown below: "Women win right to vote 1920" for God's sake, why in the first place it was forbidden women to vote!? We are in the 21st century and still there are ridiculous restrictions on women around the world. Women are banned from doing a lot of things. Even laughing for a woman has become a subject, even in our modern country (Turkey)! You know people with such bigoted mindset should be banned from the government. That'll be the best

Conservation of a Victorian Wedding Dress - Victoria and Albert Museum. Worn by Eliza Penelope Clay at her wedding at St. James Church, Piccadilly, London - 1865. Silk satin dress trimmed with Horniton applique lace, machine-net bobbin lace. Hooped skirt.
Wedding Dress: 1865, silk-satin, trimmed with Honiton appliqué lace, machine net and bobbin lace, hand-sewn. "Object Type: The bride's dress was a focal point just as it is today. By 1800 it had become usual for her to wear white or cream. This was a popular colour as it implied purity, cleanliness and social refinement. The wide skirt of dress would have been supported underneath by a cage crinoline. In 1865 cage crinolines protruded out more from behind and were flatter in front in contrast to the bell-shaped crinolines of the 1850s. People: Queen Victoria helped popularise the fashion for white when she got married in 1840. She set a royal precedent by choosing a simple ivory satin dress which was very much in the fashions of the day. Earlier royal brides had worn white but their dresses were often woven or heavily embroidered with gold or silver. Social Class: Weddings were one of the most festive social occasions. They gave families the chance to show off their wealth and even less well-off couples would make an effort to dress appropriately. Not everyone, however, wore white. Widows, older brides and the less well-off often preferred more practical coloured gowns. These could then be worn for Sunday best long after the marriage. They would not have looked out of place as wedding dresses in the 19th century were designed in line with the current fashions. Ownership & Use: This dress, veil and a pair of boots also in the museum's collection (T.43B, C-1947) were worn by Eliza Penelope Bright, nee Clay (the mother of the donor) for her marriage to Joseph Bright at St James's, Piccadilly on 16th February 1865. Wedding dresses are one of the rare types of garment for which the name of the wearer and the date of her marriage are often recorded."
