Women's History Month: Voting
March is Women's History Month, so this week we're highlighting important events in the lives of pioneering women and providing a related tip that you can use whether you're female or male.
Event: In 1916, Jeannette Rankin became the first woman elected to Congress.
Tip: Though Jeannette Rankin's home state of Montana had already granted women the right to vote, she was elected to the House of Representatives before the passage of the 19th Amendment. Celebrate your right to vote by supporting politicians with green agendas. Take action by writing letters to your representatives to tell them that protecting the environment is important.
