On August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which guarantees the right of all American women to vote, was ratified as Tennessee became the 36th state to approve it. Neither Susan B Anthony, nor Elizabeth Cady Stanton lived to see the day.

In related news, Dino Rossi, Republican candidate for governor of Washington, is referring to himself as a member of the GOP (Grand Ole Party) in all his ads. Hmmm. Is he trying to trick people into thinking he's not a Republican. Ha.
