Rock the 19th

Although I don’t know what some women were thinking this past presidential election, today we celebrate their right to F up. It’s Women’s Equality Day!  On this day, in 1920, the 19th Amendment gave women the legal right to vote. Since then we’ve taken some giant leaps forward (and a few baby steps backward).

Celebrate today by thinking about all that has been accomplished with the support, partnership, and leadership of women voters.  Women have played key roles in elections and the passing of legislation at local, state, and federal levels.  The impact of women voters can’t be denied.  If you are a woman of voting age take today to think about how you use your vote.  Maybe you need to register, maybe you need to get involved in local government, or maybe you just need to read the entire ballot book the next time you receive it in the mail.  Being involved in creating laws and choosing leaders to represent you isn’t a privilege, it’s a right, one women had to fight to receive.  Don’t take your voice lightly.  Have fun and…

HOLIDAY ON MY FRIENDS!!!
