In Which We Celebrate Sufragettes

Happy 90th birthday, 19th Amendment!  And thank you, Miss Anthony and Mrs. Catt and Miss Mott and the thousands of nameless women and men who fought for 72 years for a woman's right to vote. Thanks to you, I voted in my state's primary on Tuesday. Thanks largely to you, I am no longer chattel. I can go to college. I can keep my children in a divorce. I can inherit property. I can own property, not be it.
