In honor of the 90th anniversary of women obtaining the vote I am posting a picture of my grandmother's banner that she wore during her many years of fighting for the vote. She started in college (class of 1904) and went around the country working for the vote until her mother died.She then limited her work to her home state of NY. She even took my mother to one of the last suffragette parades in NY.

Here's to you and all the ones like you, Grandmother. Every time I vote I think of you.
