Suffragists

“We women of America tell you that America is not a democracy. Twenty million women are denied the right to vote. President Wilson is the chief opponent of their national enfranchisement.”

Quote from a banner outside the White House in 1917.

Women received the right to vote by the 19th Amendment to the Constitution ratified in 1920. Hard to believe it has been less than 100 years.

This piece of art is located in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Three fantastic shots of these sculptures of brave women from our history. I LOVE the light and perspective in #1.....and the HDR processing in the last really brings out the details. Beautiful work, Jeff!
