when pigs fly … expect the unbelievable

Archive for July 2016

In 20 days we can celebrate the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the US.  It occurred on August 18, 1920, when Tennessee’s ratification of the Amendment passed by one (1) vote.

Can you imagine how your life would be different if, like the ERA, the 19th Amendment had not been ratified?

Did you know that between the years of 1910 and 1918, several states (Arizona, Arkansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota and Washington) and the Alaska Territory extended women the vote.  And, of course, Wyoming had extended the vote to females in the 1800s and by 1876 had elected their first woman Governor.

Stay tuned to hear the inside story on Tennessee’s ratification.
