The Suffragettes

We are so immersed in the 2016 presidential election, I thought I would highlight the suffrage movement in the early 1900’s.  I used  a billboard from a 1915 photograph. In case you can’t read it, it says:

“We Demand an amendment to the United States Constitution Enfranchising Women.”

Oak Valley is in 1912.  It would be another 8 years before women were allowed to vote.
