#WomenDoingWell: Dropping ballots-do it for Susie B.
SUSAN B. ANTHONY. ALICE PAUL. ELIZABETH CADY STANTON.
If not for these ladies and the many who shared their beliefs, we wouldn’t be about 5 years shy of celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment and women’s right to vote (although we all agree that number should be much higher than 100). It’s Tuesday, November 4. Midterm election day. No matter your stance, no matter your age, go vote.
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
There’s still time to read up on the issues. My personal favorite resource is theSkimm’s Guide to the 2014 Midterm Elections. Partially because I love reading theSkimm on my morning commute (sign up here, it’s free and fabulous), and also it gets right to the point. Other voting perks include: an excuse to grab some fresh air, and maybe a hot espresso. Bonus: polls are open after the 9-5 so you can still pop in before going to spin.
WE’LL KEEP IT SHORT AND SWEET.
Amendment #19 showed up fashionably late in 1920 (14 years after Susie B. passed away). Don’t follow suit.
In future posts, we’ll be featuring readers’ favorite causes and notable leading ladies in giving and nonprofit-send us yours at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: #WomenDoingWell
