Living in the U.S.? GO VOTE!!!



Here in the United States it's Election Day. Honor your revolutionary foremothers and get thee to your polling place!

Remember that most of the early Suffragists in this country were mothers (many had five or six children): Julia Ward Howe, Kate Shepard, Ida B. Wells, Sojourner Truth. Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote suffrage speeches while nursing her sixth child.

These women suffered arrest, hunger strikes, and force feedings for our right to vote. Honor their struggle, exercise your rights. Go on... turn off the computer... VOTE!!!! ... we'll still be here when you get back.
