Our Founders' Warning: “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.” (Thomas Jefferson)

1848 to 1920

“The 1848 Seneca Falls Convention in New York is traditionally held as the start of the American women’s rights movement.” … “The Nineteenth Amendment … to the United States Constitution prohibits any United States citizen from being denied the right to vote on the basis of sex. It was ratified on August 18, 1920.” I.e., 72 years later. (Courtesy © Wikipedia)
