Yesterday was the anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the constitution, giving women the right to vote. The suffrage movement started in abouts 1858, by Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone and other names I vaguely recognize from grade school. The first national election that women could vote in was in November of 1920, which was a long time by olden days standards. None of the movement’s founders lived long enough to ever cast a ballot.
In honor of this bittersweet milestone in our nation’s history, the ladies of poker get to vote on everything tonight. Pre-flop raise? Put it to a vote! Want another beer? I vote you have had enough!
Hosting poker tonight will be the lovely Neal and Jen of Columbia Heights. [————-]. Start time 8pm, bring something yummy. RSVP, it’s kind of like voting on having poker.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go to a hearing where I will sit silently in the back while men argue over the briefs that I wrote and yet do not bear my name. Ah, progress.
