Been on hiatus a bit, no place exciting, just roaming around MAD’s apartment. Did I tell you he bought me a new litter box? Probably not, as I have not posted in almost two weeks, that happens – not posting that is, new litter boxes don’t happen all that often. Hope you’ve all been well.
We’re back today with info on a peaceful march along NYC’s Fifth Avenue back in 1915. More than 25,000 women aka suffragettes, walked to bring attention for the right of women to vote.
In the above file photo, these women are carrying a stretcher piled with ballot boxes, indicating the poor health of a democratic system that denies half of its constituents a voice. Look a little closer and you will see that these gals are marching in KITTEN HEELS – my favorite. Now there’s a statement!
Of course, the 19th Amendment, which gave women the vote, did not become ratified until five years later, but we have to wonder if we’d ever had the right to vote had these brave – and very coordinated – women had not taken their mission to the streets. Thank you, ladies.
Hope you all have a great day, xo LMA
