~I have, without a doubt, a love of photo's and a love of history.  So when the two come together as they have in the picture above...color me a happy camper!  Here's a handful of the women who made my future what it is today.  My rights assured because of their work.  Good on them!~


  1. Serena, that is one fabulous photo! Almost a hundred years ago. Wow! GOOD on them, absolutely. I've read a few of the suffragette's stories, and the way they were brutalized... I just have to wonder.

  2. Oh man, the suffragettes suffered unmercifully for their belief's and cause, yet still they did it. They were some strong women!

  3. They were strong, and have my undying admiration.
