LRT: "When Arquette says: To every woman who gave birth to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, I hear Carrie Chapman Catt in 1915"
It is true, from the dawn of time women have been held under the sway of men in a patriarchal society. For the longest time, the basic rights of women did not exist, they were looked upon as property of men, incapable of thought or idea, furthermore society did not believe they could take care of themselves in any way shape or form. Then the women's rights movement came to be, and over a period of one hundred fifty years women made leaps and bounds in their quest for equal treatment in a society dominated by men. Women like Elizabeth Candy Stanton, Alice Paul and Carrie Chapman Catt who all spent their lives working so hard just to attain equal treatment, wishing for nothing more to be treated like people and not property. Now my question is why? why must we as a people, or a race, look down upon others for the color of their skin, the religion that they follow or what is or isn't hanging between their legs, why are most of you so pig headed to believe that it's ok to objectify women in a sexual manner? w ...

On April 28, 1867, 12 women joined together to form a secret college society for women, not knowing what the future would hold. That society was founded as I.C. Sorosis at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois. This later became Pi Beta Phi. Pi Beta Phi was the first national secret college society of women to be modeled after the Greek-letter fraternities of men. At a time when few women were admitted to colleges and universities, Pi Beta Phi created a feeling of unity among pioneering women. Since 1867, more than 240,000 women have been initiated to Pi Beta Phi. There are 135 active chapters within the USA and Canada.

Here's a more partisan view of Paul...(I can't give a H/T because I lost the post I copied it from.) SUFFRAGIST OF THE MONTH: Alice Stokes Paul (1885 - 1977) Alice Paul was, arguably, the most influential individual in the fight for women’s rights of the 20th century. Born on January 11, 1885, Paul was the oldest child of successful businessman William Paul and his wife, Tacie. Alice and her siblings were raised on a comfortable New Jersey farm, but as Quakers, the family lived simply, learning firsthand the value of hard work. They also learned gender equality, as well as a necessity to work for the improvement of society. Perhaps one of her strongest influences was Tacie, who as a member of the National American Women’s Suffragist Association (NAWSA), brought Alice along to the meetings. Paul studied biology at Swarthmore College, earned an MA in sociology at the University of Pennsylvania, then studied social work in England. While in England, she became acquainted with Emmeline Pankhurst, the mili ...

Your THURSDAY BirthDayScope for Jan. 9: Happy Birthday, Capricorn! Opinionated and driven by principle, ethics and honor, you're an outstanding human being. You don't just mouth interesting ideas and homilies; you live your beliefs. A large number of you are compelled to write, teach, practice or study law, or explore psychology or anthropology. You always look for the motive behind a deed. The act itself is less important to you than the process that generated it. You're also fascinated with history, precedents and religion - all elements that document man's understanding of his place in the universe. Many of you dabble in various belief systems until you find something that truly resonates. No matter what your position on religion may be, you possess a deep wonder about the mysteries of life. There's something remarkable about your vibe. People feel a different kind of energy emanating from you, as if you're more spiritual than physical. Your eyes are extremely expressive - and probably seductive in a . ...
Today's sorority spotlight is all about Pi Beta Phi at JHU!! Pi Beta Phi Fraternity was founded on April 28, 1867, at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois. They wear the Golden Arrow across their hearts, ever pointed up. The 12 links represent their 12 founders, and the arrow is also Pi Phi's official symbol. The fraternity colors are wine and silver blue, and the Wine Carnation is their official flower. Angels, the unofficial Fraternity symbol, became associated with Pi Phi in the 1930s. The values set for Pi Phi by their founders are: integrity, lifelong commitment, honor & respect, philanthropic service to others, personal & intellectual growth, and sincere friendship. Pi Phi is the first women's fraternity to be modeled on the men's groups and the first to start a chapter at another college. There are 131 chapters around the U.S. and Canada, and our chapter is Maryland Gamma! Read. Lead. Achieve is Pi Beta Phi’s philanthropic effort, which inspires a lifelong love of reading that can unlock true p ...
“Everybody counts in applying democracy. And there will never be a true democracy until every responsible and law-abiding adult in it, without regard to race, sex, color or creed has his or her own inalienable and unpurchasable voice in government,” by Carrie Chapman Catt.

Here is some Olive History of Oroville:History Freda Ehmann "...not how much, nor how inexpensive but how good a product can we produce?" This early mission statement was the slogan for Freda Ehmann, considered by many as the "Mother of the California Olive Industry". In 1895, at the age of 56, Freda Ehmann found herself penniless and a widow. Her savings depleted, her sole tangible asset was a 20-acre olive orchard of dubious value. While her son, friends and a few lawyers urged her to file bankruptcy, Freda reminded her son that the family had always paid its debts. Thus began what a society at the end of the 1800’s would have seen as impossible steps of faith for a woman. "In looking back over these first pages of our business history, one might truthfully say that I did not know the enormity of the task which was before me." - Freda Ehmann, 1911 In the spring of 1898 Freda Ehmann got together enough money to take a marketing trip. First heading by boat to Vancouver, the year of the Klondike Gold Rus ...
Every day is a good day to make a resolution for beginning a new way of living, but the New Year's Day holiday provides a good focus for reviewing our lives and resolving to live each day with conscious attention. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ~ Thomas Paine "When a just cause reaches its flood tide - whatever stands in the way must fall before its overwhelming power." ~ Carrie Chapman Catt "It's choice -- not chance -- that determines your destiny." ~ Jean Nidetch Maybe now's the time to establish a new pattern of viewing your life fresh. ~ Mary Anne Radmacher "Imagination rules the world."

Happy Mother's Day to all hardworking Mommies and to all the past and present women that continues to fight for equal rights! Despite this monumental triumph, the suffragists still had much work to do. It would be another year before the Senate passed the suffrage amendment, and another year beyond that before the necessary thirty-six states would ratify it. Finally, on August 26, 1920, seventy-five years ago today, the Nineteenth Amendment gave women throughout the nation the right to vote. At the last Suffrage Convention of 1920, Carrie Chapman Catt spoke to the joyful women: Ours has been a movement with a soul, ever leading on. Women came, served, and passed on, but others came to take their places. Who shall say that all the hosts of the millions of women who have toiled and hoped and met delay are not here today, and joining in the rejoicing? Their cause has won. Be glad today. Let your joy be unconfined. Let it speak so clearly that its echo will be heard around the world. [Let] it find its way int ...
