While it says vote 2008, make sure you vote 2012 too!

And the message in a different way!

    Like the videos. So glad voting is behind me. I look forward to a quiet day of no political calls.

    Voted with probably only a five – ten minute wait. Although someone signed under my name. Weird. They didn’t catch that Cathy Davis wasn’t Leigh Davis

    They actually showed “Iron Jawed Angels”, the biopic from which the video is made, at my company. It was fun to watch and see how women argued and planned and strategized to get the vote. I made Alice proud and voted on Saturday.

    LinnieGayl AAR: Leigh, I absolutely love these two videos. Thank you so much!

    I really like both too (grin) that why I couldn’t decide between the two. I don’t ever remember studying about Alice Paul or Lucy Burns. I had to check out the story – and wikipedia states:

    He also ordered Burns to be force fed. Historian Eleanor Clift recounts that the force feeding of Lucy Burns required “five people to hold her down, and when she refused to open her mouth, they shoved the feeding tube up her nostril.” This treatment was extremely painful and dangerous, causing Burns to have severe nosebleeds.[59] Of the well-known suffragists of the era, Burns spent the most time in jail.[11]

    I can’t imagine being force feed like that.

    I wish all women in America could see this! It really wasn’t that long ago and we still have a long way to go.
