Celebrating 100 years of voting

British women won the right to vote on February, 6, 1918—100 years ago.

At least some British women won the right to vote. Only female property owners who were 30 or older were eligible to vote, explains The New York Times. It took another decade before Britain extended the right to vote to all women 21 or older.

In the United States, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granted women the right to vote on August 18, 1920.

Yes, we’ve made progress. But, more progress is needed!
