A Note from the Editors

Women haven’t always had the right to vote. In fact, it wasn’t until the early 1920s that women were granted the right to participate in the U.S. elections. Watch the video below to find out more about the origins of the Suffragist movement and hear some of their stories:

We at Graceful Grit believe in the power of women, and all that they bring to the table. One very tangible way to make your voice heard is to vote.
