Who's your #WomanCrushWednesday? Ours is suffragist May Wright Sewall, born #OTD in 1844. Sewall was influential in her home state Indiana's suffrage movement, & the national movement as well. Sadly, Sewall died July 1920, just a month before the 19th Amendment's ratification. https://t.co/SGNJhjrjXU NJWomenVote100 photo

This week's #FeministFriday goes to impressionist Mary Cassatt, born #OTD in 1844. Remembered for her influence in the art world, Cassatt was also an advocate for women's suffrage. In fact, when her friend held an exhibition for suffrage, Cassatt contributed 18 of her paintings!

#HappyBirthday to NJ Suffragist Alison Turnbull Hopkins. Born #OTD in 1880, Hopkins was one of the “Silent Sentinels.” You may recognize Hopkins from the iconic image of her picketing the White House, with a banner that asked: “MR. PRESIDENT HOW LONG MUST WOMEN WAIT FOR LIBERTY”
