What a wonderful story! I applaud the bravery of those women who lived in a time when their civil rights were very much oppressed and our culture and society tried all it could to cement them into subservient roles. The power of achieving the franchise is illustrated by the current attempts by the right wing in this country to subvert and suppress voting rights in 2013. They fought the good fight and won!

Dolly Madison wrote to remind her husband, James, the main author of our constitution, to not forget the ladies in that very important document. It's a shame he wasn't able to follow her advice and that it took 120 years to correct the oversight.

Great job ladies. How cool that Chautauqua County was the home to the largest county suffrage organizations in the nation -- I never knew that. Women coming together made a change for the better.

'Disappointed' perhaps you should be the change you wish to see happen in your hometown for yourself and your children. 'So long suckers??' Your kind of attitude is not what we need to move Chautauqua County forward anyway. Adios.

A woman's right? Shouldn't she be able to raise her child in her hometown without having to leave for a better life? Disappointed and sad. We will be leaving this sad place ASAP! Did u know people move here because benefits for welfare are better than in NYC? ! Its true. So long suckers :(
