Bella Adams-Brown shares her thoughts and reactions to the 100 year history of women’s right to vote in the US. She gives a Generation Z, 12-year-old perspective on the complicated struggle for votes for women leading up to Aug 18, 1920. Freida Adams shares a Baby Boomer perspective on what it meant to her to see her mom and other women and men in her family vote when she was a child. We discuss the generations and how setting an example leaves a legacy of how important it is that all voices be heard. We discuss the racism that darkened the purity of the movement, and how black women would have to wait many more years to be given access to the polls. We also talk about how voter surpression still exists today, and how we should welcome all voices to speak into our society’s choices for leadership. We commemorate the 19th Ammendment’s 100 year history, and let it spur us on to include more votes into government because some things are just too big to do alone. Stay In Touch:
