Paying a Debt

It took me a second to understand this picture–why would anyone desecrate the headstone on Susan B. Anthony’s grave?   But then I realized the stickers said, “I voted today” and I smiled. Please use your right to vote. Become informed, and speak your mind come Election Day. Don’t ignore this gift that women like Susan B. Anthony fought to give us.

  
And if you haven’t seen the film, Suffragette, detailing the hardships British women endured in order to be allowed to vote, I highly recommend it.

  1. I still found it astounding to think that when my grandmother was born, the only countries in the world where women could vote were New Zealand, Australia and Finland. (And in the case of Australia, if you were part of the indigenous community, you weren’t able to vote regardless of your sex until 1962.) In some ways, the world has definitely become a better place.
