26. Women surrounded the White House 24/7 for the right to vote.
When one was arrested, another took her place. Some staged hunger strikes in prison. Mother Jones started organizing unions for miners. When she was in her 50's! Jane Addams founded the powerful Peace Party in the early 20th century which laid the cultural foundation for the New Deal, imho.

I am woman, hear my roar muffled by history.


Never learned anything about gay rights, ever.
