English: “Country Gentleman” magazine cover, November 1922. The 19th Amendment giving all women the right to vote wasn’t ratified until August 1920. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Women won the right to vote in 1920 with the passage of the 19th amendment to the US Constitution. Before then, only men could vote in national elections. Some men believed that women were not suited for making political decisions in a world dominated by money and power. With the right to vote comes the necessity that the entrenched power structure recognize the worth and the demands of those who can vote. After the GOP take away a woman’s control of her own body, women may expect that the GOP will attack a woman’s right to vote, using the tired old argument that women are not suited to the rough and tumble of politics. Ladies, beware.
