“Women have suffered agony of soul which you can never comprehend, that you and your daughters might inherit political freedom. That vote has been costly. Prize it!” -Carrie Chapman Catt, 1920

March is Women’s History Month. Every March, Americans remember the women who came before uswho are often overlooked in androcentric history books. We celebrate women who helped bring us the rights we enjoy today, and let their stories inspire us to continue the good work.
