88 Years

The 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote, was ratified on August 18, 1920 - 88 years ago today. When I cast my vote in the presidential primaries in February, I exercised a constitutional right that women a hundred years ago couldn't even imagine. Isn't it incredible to think that just 88 years ago, women were unable to participate in the political conversation in a meaningful way?
