Today is the first day of the “19 Days of Suffrage,” (#19DaysofSuffrage) to celebrate the powerful film Suffragette, as it releases in theaters nationwide through Thanksgiving. These 19 Days are in honor of the 19th Amendment, which granted women in the United States the right to vote in 1919. Imagine if these women had not taken the stand to give all of us women equal rights.
As you go about your day today, think about the movement for equality. Tomorrow may seem like just another election day, but in reality, those who fought for women’s right would find tomorrow empowering. Watch the special clip below about how things have change from Then to Now.
Now that you have seen the comparison of women’s rights from then to now, share the badge below with a post about what you think it means to be a Suffragette and how this movement affected your life. Pin it, Tweet it, share it, Instagram it and get the word out that you have joined the “19 Days of Suffrage.”
