Brave women have fought for women's equality since 1848. Our right to vote wasn't even won until 1920, and there is so much more. The history of women's rights is long and rich with brave women and important gains. There is still a very long way to go before women are truly equal in this country. Sadly, the 'fight' is far from over.
Susan Brownell Anthony was a prominent American civil rights leader who played a pivotal role in the 19th century women's rights movement to introduce women's suffrage into the United States. She was co-founder of the first Women's Temperance Movement with Elizabeth Cady Stanton as President. She was one of the important advocates in leading the way for women's rights to be acknowledged and instituted in the American government.
Women have been fighting for their equality and autonomy for decades. The political climate is more hostile to women today than at any point in the last 40 years, especially when it comes to pay equity, contraception and women's health in general. So remember this Nov. 6 to #vote like your health depends on it....because it does. #obamacare #birthcontrol #waronwomen
