“I know nothing of man’s rights, or woman’s rights; human rights are all that I recognize.”Sarah Moore Grimké

On August 18, 1920, women were granted the right to vote in the United States. This past Saturday marked the 98th anniversary of that momentous shift in American culture, politics, and society. This week we honor the fearless, forward-thinking suffragettes who fought not only for their own rights but for the liberties of the countless women who would come after them.
