It’s a frustrating and surreal time to be alive. Every day in America looks more like The Handmaid’s Tale, so it’s often hard to stay positive and keep your head above water. Our advice? Look to the organizers.
To celebrate the 98th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment in Tennessee’s legislature (that’s the one that gave American women the right to vote), the Board of the Tennessee Suffrage Monument is throwing a celebration at Alan LeQuire’s Tennessee Woman Suffrage Monument (located in Centennial Park). Mayor Briley will be in attendance, and representatives from suffrage fundraising committees in Memphis, Chattanooga, and Clarksville will present plans for monuments in their respective cities.
