Lest We Forget - The Suffragist
It has been 92 years, 2 months and 17 days that we as American women have had the US Constitutional right to vote. In two days we as “citizens” of the United States will be asked to invoke that right once again. I hope that you will not waste such a precious gift as was given by these women. They never got to see the 19th Amendment ratified by all 48 states. That event did not occur until March 22, 1984 when Mississippi ratified the amendment 84 years later. It took these women 50 years just to get the amendment into Congress, in those days that was at least 2 generations working together to reach their goals. Pretty amazing when we start complaining about issues not getting resolved in less than 10 years. I know that we are more inclined to admire the people that have more dangerous jobs but the Suffragist should be as admired as the others. It is her tenacity, diligence, wiliness to face censure and physical danger that should make her one of our heroes. So don’t forget to vote.
Thanks Rob for this challenge. I really enjoyed looking through old pictures and reading about the movement.

I must admit that, of all the takes on the theme I expected to see, I didn’t expect this to be one of them…
As the host, I should refrain from offering commentary on any of the entries - especially the early ones. I don’t want other people’s creativity to be channeled by what they think I want to see (other than what I posted when I revealed the theme), after all. I must remember to comment on the entries after the winners are announced…
As for the freebies, your link for “Taarna” currently points to “Cosplay Costume 5 for V4.” While I’d appreciate a fixed link, you have more than enough other free items to qualify.
