Apropos of the Day

In 1920 these suffragettes from the National Woman’s Party unfurled a banner at the Republican National Convention in Chicago.

The banner displays a quote from Susan B. Anthony. “No self respecting woman should wish or work for the success of a party that ignores her sex.”

On this International Women’s Day 2012, perhaps it’s appropriate to reflect on what progress, if any, has been made over the past century.
