90 years ago today women got the vote

That’s still cause for celebration in itself, and especially as we now have a woman running for the most powerful job in the world, the US President, go Hillary! The whole race over there is very exciting and it’s also great to see the first black person Barack Obama in the running too. I think they’re both great candidates, and I only hope that one of them can beat the republicans.

Although things have come a long way in 90 years, there’s still a long way to go and we should keep fighting so that everyone has equal rights.

• Women earn on average 17% less than men
• 1 in 4 women experiences domestic violence
• Women make up only 20% of MPs

I think we should always remember those women who fought so that we could have the vote and some made many sacrafices to themselves, some even giving their lives to the cause. We owe it to them to vote in elections whenever we get the chance.
