Celebrating 95 Years of Women's Suffrage

Posted By on Tue, Aug 18, 2015 at 1:30 PM


Election season is here and things are, well, ridiculous. But tonight, ladies, we're going to take a night off from jamming to Donald Trump's tweets and debating the merits of the Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton campaigns. Tonight, we're celebrating our say in who takes over the Oval Office.

The 19th Amendment was ratified 95 years ago today: 
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Pour yourself a gin and tonic, tonight we're toasting progress.
