If you’re a woman, I hope you voted today…

If you’re a woman, I hope you voted in this election. Not just because of some of the issues at hand but because lots of women before you fought for your right to vote. Shoot, the Founders of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. didn’t march down Pennsylvania Avenue for nothing in March 1913.

One of Delta’s Founders Florence Letcher Toms commented, “We marched that day in order that women might come into their own, because we believed that women not only needed an education, but they needed a broader horizon in which they may use that education. And the right to vote would give them that privilege.”
