On August 18th 1920 the 19th Amendment passed, granting American women* the right to vote. If you want to read up on the women's suffrage movement I suggest the biography of Princess Sophia Duleep Singh (a British Princess and BAD ASS suffragette) by Anita Anand or Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Women's Rights Movement by Sally G. McMillen. I would also recommend the film Suffragette -- it has Meryl Streep as Emmeline Pankhurst people!!!! Today I am going to be lazy with the blog and just share various historical images about women's suffrage and let you take them in. All images are either my own or courtesy of wikicommons and my cocktail today is: The Bloody Mary Wollstonecraft (just a regular Bloody Mary named after the women's rights activist). Let me know if you have a favorite image - mine is The Steam Roller.
Here is my own collage/doodle to honor the 19th Amendment :
* married, rich, white ladies ....
