Email from Page Harrington: Why Today Matters for Women's History | Herstory | Scoop.it

One day in 1917, a dozen women gathered in front of the White House. They were staging a silent protest to call for women’s right to vote.

 

Spectators yelled at them, kicked them, and spit on them. They ripped the women’s banners from their hands and threw them onto the ground.

 

...Today the President will designate a national monument for women's equality. Page Harrington talks about why this matters for women's history.

1869: No votes for women and their evil disguises

Founding Feminists: October 15, 1915 "New Jersey Next!"

Founding Feminists: October 15, 1915 "New Jersey Next!" | Herstory | Scoop.it

New Jersey is unique, in that it was the last place in the U.S. where women had the right to vote prior to Wyoming’s enfranchisement of women in 1869.
