Historic Women Leaders We Benefit From Today

Sometimes I think about women leaders from years past, whose leadership vision we are enjoying the benefits of today. On this, the day after the election, I can think of no better example than the women who fought for our right to vote. Can you imagine living in a world where women cannot vote? Singing about the ‘Land of the Free’ would feel a little different, I think!

Thank you to the women who, beginning as early as 1840’s, fought for this right that was finally secured by the 19th Amendment to the Constitution in 1920. We thank them for their brave leadership and vision for the future. It was a long, difficult battle and we should remember this history, honor them, be inspired by them, and celebrate them every time we vote.
