In the past decade alone women have turned out more votes, made advancements in leadership positions, increased involvement in political debates and also society as a whole. Without the help of our ancestors through their protest and fight for the women’s right to vote women of our generation would not have the voice to choose who represents them on a local, state, and federal level.
