In Aug 1920, Febb E Burn flipped her son Harry's vote with a few short words: "be a good boy" & "vote for suffrage." His vote was crucial: #Tennessee was the last state where women had hope of picking up the crucial 36th vote for ratification of the 19th Amendment. ⭐️ #VOTE ⭐️ Image
For 72 yrs, women lobbied & agitated for the vote. In 1917, "militant" activists led by Alice Paul organized the 1st White House picket. It lasted months in all weather. Wilson had Paul & dozens others jailed in conditions so abysmal they went on a hunger strike. ⭐️ #VOTE Image
Mother: Check out Alice Paul, PhD. #JerseyGirl. #Quaker. Led the "militant" wing of the #suffrage movement. Stood on soapboxes & gave bossy speeches. Brought the 72-!!!-year fight for the #vote to victory, then wrote the ERA, still unratified 97!!! years later. @janpurcell2

19. #TheWizardofOz (1939). This foursome trudges all the way to Oz, kills the witch on wizard's orders, then finds out the wizard is a fraud. Somehow he recovers from this potentially career-ending discovery by giving his visitors a handful of trinkets and a speech. That's #PR.
