Unchartered waters to campaign during a pandemic, but @eleanorslegacy is asking women candidates to make a get-to-know-you-video, so my dog Ace & I did! Please watch & share #electwomen #AllInThisTogether
Who gets the “where everybody knows your name” reference? 😉
And yes it should be *uncharted 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️

House Republicans WALK OUT on a bipartisan hearing about how the VA can help better female veterans’ lives, REFUSING TO VOTE.

They don’t care about women. They don’t care about vets. They don’t care about their constituents.

If anyone wants to ask the COWARDLY Republicans on the committee why 2 million women vets don’t deserve better care, here they are:

@DrPhilRoe @RepGusBilirakis @RepBost @DrNealDunnFL2 @RepJackBergman @RepJimBanks @RepAndyBarr @RepMeuser @Rep_Watkins @RepChipRoy @RepGregSteube
ALL of these Republicans had a seat at the table every step of the way writing this legislation. Last minute they decide to throw additions on, stall voting, then storm out.

If any of these cowards represent your area, do they represent your values? Keep it in mind when voting.

On June 4, 1919 the amendment was passed by Congress and it was ratified on August 18, 1920.
** BUT not all women were given the right to vote. **
Even with the amendment, suffrage was hardly universal.

+ Millions remained legally or effectively disenfranchised, including Asian-Americans many of whom continued to be denied voting rights until the 1950s.
+ Nearly all Blacks in the South were disenfranchised until the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965.
+ Native Americans were not even citizens of the United States until the passage of the 1924 Indian Citizenship Act. Some states denied Native Americans suffrage right until 1948.

1/ "Hillbilly Elegy" author J.D. Vance's family was from Eastern Kentucky and he mainly grew up in Southwest Ohio. I'm sure another Appalachian state (there are 13 to choose from) could use the influx of cash that a large scale Netflix production would bring in. #sundaymorning
2/ If you haven't read "Hillbilly Elegy", it's worth it if only to understand the righteous indignation in the far superior book about Appalachia called "What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia" by Elizabeth Catte #Sundaymorning…
3/ Ron Howard and Brian Grazer say they're shooting "Hillbilly Elegy" in Georgia so people who are counting on that income aren't left in the lurch, but if the abortion ban makes it through the courts, they'll move the production elsewhere. #sundaymorning
