A Mighty Girl

Happy 100 Years of Women's Suffrage! On this day in 1920, the 19th Amendment -- the Constitutional amendment which guaranteed American women the right to vote -- was ratified after Tennessee became the 36th state to approve the measure by a vote of 49 to 48 in the state legislature. The amendment's passage marked the culmination of a 72-year long struggle to achieve equal voting rights for women which had begun at the first women's right conference organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848. The 19th Amendment was the single largest extension of democratic voting rights in U.S. history, and it was achieved through decades of struggle and sacrifice by countless courageous women, many of whom endured years of ridicule, hardship, and even imprisonment, physical assault, and force feeding, all in pursuit of women's suffrage.

The 19th Amendment was a universal recognition of women's right to vote that decreed that no citizen could be denied the right to vote on account of sex. This was a right that had been extended to all men in the country 50 years earlier with the passage of the 15th Amendment in 1870. Even with its passage, however, the struggle for women's rights was far from over. The ability of women of color to exercise their right to vote varied dramatically across the country; while most African American women freely voted in the North and even ran for office after the passage of the 19th Amendment, for example, restrictive state laws effectively disenfranchised most African American women in the South until the passage of further civil rights laws later in the century.

Additionally, many of the suffragists who led the final push to pass the 19th Amendment quickly turned their attention to passing the Equal Rights Amendment, which would enshrine in the Constitution the principle that "women are people equal in stature before the law." The only right explicitly affirmed by the Constitution as equal for women and men is still the right to vote, as guaranteed by the 19th Amendment. While the ERA, which was originally drafted by suffragist Alice Paul in 1923, was nearly added to the Constitution 45 years ago, it narrowly failed ratification and its passage remains a goal of women's rights advocates today. Among them, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who when asked what amendment she would most like to see added to the Constitution, replied that she would choose "the Equal Rights Amendment," noting that when her granddaughters read the Constitution, she would like them to see "that that is a basic principle of our society."

Today, in honor of the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote, we're celebrating a few of the original Mighty Girls -- the suffragists! The suffragists were activists who worked tirelessly to secure that right for themselves, their daughters, and future generations of American women. Women are still grateful for the work of their suffragist sisters; since the 1980s, women have been turning out to vote in significantly higher numbers than men.

For books for all ages about the courageous women who fought for women's right to vote, visit our blog post, "How Women Won The Vote: Books for Kids & Adults About the U.S. Suffrage Movement,” at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=11827

For a fascinating book for adult readers about the final fight for the ratification of the 19th Amendment during the summer of 1920, we highly recommend "The Woman's Hour" (https://www.amightygirl.com/the-woman-s-hour) and the new Young Readers adaptation for ages 10 and up (https://www.amightygirl.com/the-woman-s-hour-young-readers)

For an excellent new children's book about the final intense stage of the Suffrage Movement, we highly recommend "Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, and Their Big Idea" for ages 7 to 12 at https://www.amightygirl.com/how-women-won-the-vote

For two excellent books about the heroic women of the U.S. Suffrage Movement, we also recommend "Roses and Radicals" for ages 10 and up (https://www.amightygirl.com/roses-and-radicals) and "Votes for Women!" for ages 13 and up (https://www.amightygirl.com/votes-for-women)

For adult readers, we recommend the new book "Suffrage: Women's Long Battle for the Vote" at https://www.amightygirl.com/suffrage-women-s-long-battle

And, for our favorite t-shirt honoring women throughout history who fought for their rights, check out the "Well behaved women seldom make history" t-shirt -- available in a variety of styles and colors for all ages -- at https://www.amightygirl.com/well-behaved-women-history-shirt

My Statement on the Passing of Rep. John Lewis

"We were beaten, we were tear-gassed. I thought I was going to die on this bridge. But somehow and some way, God almighty helped me here. We cannot give up now. We cannot give in. We must keep the faith, keep our eyes on the prize." (John Lewis)
We lost two heroes of the Civil Rights Movement this week, in John Lewis and CT Vivian. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/17/us/ct-vivian-dead.html, https://medium.com/@BarackObama/my-statement-on-the-passing-of-rep-john-lewis-fa86761cd964.
We honor and remember their non-violent direct action against the sin of racism, and we remember that the work is not done.
Black Lives Matter.
Two Bills that rep. Lewis sponsored are in congress right now, including a restoration of the Voting Rights Act, and one to reduce police brutality. Today may be a good day to encourage the senate to act.

Lament

To the African American, Black, people of African descent and African people who call Turtle Island home, from an Indigenous Northern Cheyenne woman of mixed descent residing on a reservation in southeastern Montana.

You and I are intertwined in America’s dysfunctional love story
Woven together by white death grip hands
We are actors in our worst nightmare, I’m stolen land and you’re stolen labor
Sometimes we are actresses and I’m MMIW and you are death by police brutality
And when religiosity stands aside, we have yet to fully acknowledge the death of trans people, two spirit and queer.

++++

I light the ceremonial sage grown on the land of my people
Remembering how fire came to us as a gift and how the smoke will carry my words to Creator
I pray the way of my grandparents and ancestors
I breathe in the medicine, deeply, remembering the day I was born and breath was given to me

I ask for comfort through grief and grieving
May your mourning bring healing and health
May justice surpass our understanding and live in our spirits
May new people rise to speak & profess so others can rest
May this stolen America find itself anew, a chance to change
May we be reminded that the spirit of life leans toward justice
May the breath we desire so deeply be abundant, that no man can take.

And we let these prayers fall loosely and fiercely from our beings
Knowing we are imperfect, we don’t always have the words
But we Can’t. Not. Say. Nothing.
Because BLACK LIVES MATTER.

Emergency COVID-19 measures prevented more than 500 million infections, study finds

I grieve the economic harm caused by the pandemic. I struggle against the inequities in outcomes between rich and poor, white and black.
But I was struck today by this article suggesting we have been part of a global public health action which saved the lives of many millions of people around the globe.
We could have done, and still could do better. But as the author, Solomon Hsaing writes,
"I don’t think any human endeavor has ever saved so many lives in such a short period of time. There have been huge personal costs to staying home and canceling events, but the data show that each day made a profound difference. By using science and cooperating, we changed the course of history."
