Only 88 Years

Hey, all of you American women watching the Democratic National Convention! Do you realize that we've had the right to vote for only 88 years? Today is our anniversary. We gained the right to vote 88 years ago today.

We've only just begun to show 'em what we can do. After Barack Obama has had 8 years to start turning this country around, we'll elect a fantastic woman for president, someone with higher ideals, fewer corporate ties, and much less Machiavellian than Hillary Clinton.

When it's put that way, it doesn't seem like such a long time at all. My great-aunt L was 13 when women's suffrage passed. She's still sharp as a tack -- I should ask her what she remembers of that event the next time I see her.

Now that would be a great story! I hope she has some tales to tell and that you'll blog them.
