Congress passes the 19th Amendment when the World War 1 is over, and women are granted the right to vote. During the war, activism decreased as many women were involved in war efforts.

Women's Suffrage : don't know if this is her or not, but read about what women went through for our right to vote....the last paragraph is a must. : Alice Paul led the more radical wing of those who were working for women's suffrage in 1917. Paul had taken part in more militant suffrage activity in England, including hunger strikes that were met with imprisonment and brutal force-feeding methods. She believed that by bringing such militant tactics to America, the public's sympathy would be turned towards those who protested for woman suffrage, and the vote for women would be won, finally, after seven decades of activism. And so, Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, and others separated in America from the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA), headed by Carrie Chapman Catt, and formed the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage (CU) which in 1917 transformed itself into the National Woman's Party (NWP). While many of the activists in the NAWSA turned during World War I either to pacifism or to support of America's war effort, the National Woman's Party continued to focus on winning the vote for women. During wartime, they planned and carried out a campaign to picket the White House in Washington, DC. The reaction was, as in Britain, strong and swift: arrest of the picketers and their imprisonment. Some were transferred to an abandoned workhouse located at Occoquan, Virginia. There, the women staged hunger strikes, and, as in Britain, were force-fed brutally and otherwise treated violently. I've referred to this part of woman suffrage history in other articles, notably when describing the history of the suffragist split over strategy in the last decade of activism before the vote was finally won. Feminist Sonia Pressman Fuentes documents this history in her article on Alice Paul. She includes this re-telling of the story of Occoquan Workhouse's "Night of Terror," November 15, 1917: Under orders from W. H. Whittaker, superintendent of the Occoquan Workhouse, as many as forty guards with clubs went on a rampage, brutalizing thirty-three jailed suffragists. They beat Lucy Burns, chained her hands to the cell bars above her head, and left her there for the night. They hurled Dora Lewis into a dark cell, smashed her head against an iron bed, and knocked her out cold. Her cellmate Alice Cosu, who believed Mrs. Lewis to be dead, suffered a heart attack. According to affidavits, other women were grabbed, dragged, beaten, choked, slammed, pinched, twisted, and kicked. (source: Barbara Leaming, Katherine Hepburn (New York: Crown Publishers, 1995), 182.)
1911, my great aunt was a suffragette, and the first woman to vote in her parish. Go Girl!!
The strong women who fought for women's right to vote.
girl power !
Suffragettes ~ 1911 - thank goodness for these brave women! Any woman who does not exercise her right to vote clearly does not understand history nor do they appreciate the persecution that these women endured. It is our duty as citizens to pay attention to issues and vote!
Suffragettes ~ 1911 - true grit and grace...Bless every woman who fought for women's rights and winning the women's right to vote!

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who, when seeing this photo, immediately hear "Werewolves of London" in their heads, and those who do not. That is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Chicago, showboating in a pool match with local civil rights leader Al Raby. And no, this isn't one of those photo ops where a public figure poses with a prop to look like regular folk. King was a hell of a pool player -- he took up the game in college almost 20 years earlier.
Wow! MLK playing pool
We all know he has a dream but did you know he could play pool like some kinda trick shooting pool shark? Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. showing people how it's done.

True love... Maurice Baquet and his cello photographed by Robert Doisneau
I discovered Robert Doisneau because of the Google Doodle. His photos are stunning. I found this to be most true: a musician will always put their instrument before themselves.
A man on the sidewalk in rainy Paris. The man uses his umbrella to protect his cello case. This is the famous cellist Maurice Baquet. The image was taken by photographer Robert Doisneau in 1957. This is what it's like to be a true musician - when your instrument is more important than you getting soaked.
