THE WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE MOVEMENT WAS ABOUT PROTEST
Fortunately others in previous generations started and completed my family history. This is where the interest often begins. From there, the openings move in so many directions. And that’s where the questioning takes off. The early women’s rights movement, or what was also called the women’s suffrage movement, was diverse and inevitable. Women protesting their second-class status was a new idea over 100 years ago. Today, we stand on the shoulders of those who have come before us and we pass a torch to the future for those who will carry on the work.

Keep the issues alive. Where are you in this larger process? What we take for granted today was once thought to be impossible.
Remember that over 100 years ago, the work started to make sure that an equal rights amendment was added to the US Constitution. We’ve been working with our sister web platform. to change this.
Keep the spirit of protest alive and protected.
