Today I officially began the Girls Fight Back Fall Tour in Texas, a fitting way to celebrate this very important milestone in women’s history. In 1848, a group of determined women decided it was time to demand suffrage. They came together in Seneca Falls, New York to proclaim that “all men and women are created equal.” On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution guaranteed women the right to vote. Eighty-eight years later, I give thanks to the incredible women who have come before me. I remember the dedication, obstacles, pain, sacrifices and struggles to win the rights women have today. As I head to the voting booth this year, I will remember each of them. Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Lucretia Mott. Susan B. Anthony, and many others. These women fought back…and they were victorious.
