Yes! Women, use your vote to send all these politicians who want to go back to "the good old days" when women were "sacred" ( i.e.  men got to force women to behave the way THEY thought was sacred. Societies where women have the fewest rights are the same ones that call women "sacred" "pure" "fragile" and as having the universal desire to be a mother. Look it up. These labels of male desired traits are the velvet glove on the iron fist of systematic oppression of women).

Women were reviled, kicked, beaten, ostracized and battled so women could vote. Don't disrespect their sacrifice by not exercising your vote -- every time you have the chance. -- "An American suffragette proclaiming 'Women! Use your vote,' circa "
