Women of Wednesday--Nearly 90 Years Later

The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution had been passed in August and the November elections of 1920 would be the first in which women could legally vote.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
Below is a cartoon that was published in October 1920.

There are an additional 7 steps to the top rung--the U.S. Presidency. Here we are, nearly 90 years later, and we have yet to make it to the top. Just a little something to think about as we head into 2010.
