Ninety-five years ago today, American women got the right to vote when the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was declared in effect. Today, it is celebrated as Women’s Equality Day.
Read more and more @ TIME. We had a few women that were alive (at 18 years old) when this happened, but it looks like Susannah Mushatt Jones at 116 years old wasn’t old enough to vote 95 years ago. Still incredible that it was that recent that women were not allowed to vote. Progress has been made but a lot of things were (and are) terrible.
