Anniversary of Women's Equality Day

Happy Women's Equality Day! Today is the anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment extending the right to vote to women in the United States. The first to call for woman suffrage was freethinker Elizabeth Cady Stanton in 1848, who also proposed the text of the 19th Amendment, which passed in 1920.
