In light of the mid-term elections, we've come a long way since 1920, a shockingly recent date when women in the United States, after much protesting & strife, were finally given the right to vote. Poland, Russia, German Austria, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania & a host of other countries had already beat us to that distinction by a couple of years. We still have a long way to go as far as equal rights & basic care for our citizens & inhabitants is concerned. Hats off to all of the dedicated & outspoken people who are still fighting to keep hope & sanity alive! Use your voice & be sure to vote!
