    That movement was co-opted quickly :(

    It's not really my place to say I have a problem with it,
    but there are interesting critiques around from women.

    It’s expected that change and controversy will appear in conversations involving social and political protests. I still recall, in the 7th grade, reading about those “radical” women suffragettes with their unreasonable demands....

    “Ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granted American women the right to vote—a right known as woman suffrage. At the time the U.S. was founded, its female citizens did not share all of the same rights as men, including the right to vote.”

    Le Resistance!!!

    I was gently trying to point out that things like female voting existed for a long time in North America, (late 1490's?) and certain groups are still left out of the conversation.
