elections

The 19th Amendment of the United States Constitution gave women the right to vote.  It was ratified on August 18, 1920 and put into law on August 26th, 1920.  On the 100th anniversary of the ratification, Cate Belleveau joined the morning show to discuss the history of the women’s vote, the struggles that women (and male allies) endured trying to make it a reality, and considers what the original suffragists might think of where things are at today and how people view their right to vote in modern times.
