This year on September 3, 2016, the League of Women Voters of Metro St. Louis will honor the suffragists who worked so hard to get us the right to vote. Our foremothers enabled today's reality where women not only vote, but use their voices at all levels of government, business, and society. In 1916, this could have been your grandmother or great-grandmother or great-great-grandmother who endured the ridicule of that time. Because of the women who stood in silence in 1916, it was acceptable for my grandma to be a "Rosie the Riveter", my mom to serve on a jury and choose to have me, and for me to play a sport for my college and study engineering. And today my daughters pursue their dreams with the knowledge that women have achieved positions of authority and power in all walks of life.
Join me in honoring our foremothers with a donation to Celebrate the Vote that honors a woman important to you. I am honoring my mom and grandma. The person that you honor will have their name displayed at Celebrate the Vote.
Angie Dunlap, LWV Celebrate the Vote Planning Committee
