Shoulder to shoulder into the fray

I'm far enough removed from my US history classes in high school and college that if you asked me how long ago women gained the right to vote, I would probably stammer, "Uh...80 years?  100?  Or is it more?"  And then I would google it, because we don't actually need to store information in our brains anymore, do we?
This article gave me a little brush up on the facts.  The 19th amendment passed in 1920, and seven years before that was this massive, wonderful Women's Suffrage Parade.
 Well-dressed ladies fighting for an important cause.  I love it.
Well done, sister suffragette!
