Pandemic still changing everything, but people are trying a few things

IMG_0001On Aug. 18, 1920, Tennessee legislators voted to ratify the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing the right for women to vote. It was the largest granting of suffrage in the history of the United States.

As with the cancelation of everything else, events to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage were canceled.

However, on the 100th anniversary of the Tennessee General Assembly’s vote, women in my community gathered at a the state library next to a statue of Mark Twain to celebrate. Mark Twain said women should have the right to vote.

It was fun to celebrate such a joyous occasion.
