History card Excerpt:
In 1848, a group of outspoken super smart women gathered for the first ever women's rights convention in Seneca Falls, N.Y.
Over two days, they discussed, well demanded, the betterment of women's lives. They didn't realize then that they were igniting an activist blaze that would burn for over a century!
Historians point to Seneca Falls' Declaration of Sentiments (which demanded equal social status and legal rights for women-including the right to vote!) as the kickoff of the women's rights movement worldwide.

Voting is a form of speech. Every ballot cast is a way of raising one's voice in protest, solidarity, or support. Before women had the right to vote, they had no voice in American democracy [democratic process]. Today, Vox Femina - the Voice of the Woman - echoes from coast to coast.
