Women's Suffrage

Congratulations and happy anniversary to the enfranchised women of the United States.

It was on this day, August 26, ninety-two years ago, that the 19th amendment was ratified, after about 70 years of agitation. 

"The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex and Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
