I’m watching the PBS - Ken Burns production “Not for Ourselves Alone”. It’s about Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony.
I CANNOT BELIEVE that women couldn’t VOTE, DID NOT have the RIGHT to VOTE until 1920!. The fact that women were not deemed WORTHY of the “right” to vote is simply INCONCEIVABLE to me! How could people - of either sex ever believe this?! I suppose that I “should” be happy that I cannot understand this view of the world - but I am more appalled that anyone ever COULD accept or understand this view!
The fact that women were considered to be less HUMAN than men?! OH MY GOD! I have always known that people used to think this but at this point in my life I cannot understand how this existed here in the US.
In 1848 NO woman in the WORLD had the right to vote - this is simply beyond my comprehension - then I am terrified that about 1/2 of the world’s population still believes this!!
I think this is something I will be thinking about and reading about for a while…
