We should never forget that we have had the right to vote for less than 100 years, that our ancestors fought and were imprisoned to get this. We should never forget some of the things that they were fighting for - like the right to birth control. And we should be VERY WORRIED that some of these rights are being taken away from us TODAY. When politicians are once more questioning women being in the military (because it might distract the men, because they'll be more concerned about protecting the "girls"), when legislators are removing coverage for birth control from our insurance plans - it might very well be the right to vote that we will lose next unless we USE IT and VOTE!

When they marched for the women's right to vote 100 years ago, they were imprisoned, put into straight jackets and force fed until they vomited blood. They fought for your right to own property, to have access to birth control and your right to an education. This video is fun and clever and hits on some hard truths. And it makes you ask yourself...what I am willing to do today to fight back and protect our rights as women and citizens?
