Female Activism Sets Out to Win the Vote
              Women in the United States today experience equality that resonates into their jobs, homes, and life. A woman’s dreams are sought after and her voice is raised; what was once a mere hope is now the contemporary woman’s reality. The 21st century United States is the product of hardworking women activists, reformists and suffrage groups. Despite the rocky road before them, women in history persevered through all obstacles that obstructed their path to equality. Although in the present United States a woman can be seen standing on equal ground with a male counterpart, in the early decades of the 20th century this image was unheard of. Women faced working long, being paid low wages and often their jobs were in unsafe conditions. The attention of the female activist was turned to these working standards with hopes of finding improvement. With the progressive era came a surplus of women who exerted their efforts to redefine the working conditions of their gender. The concentration on working conditions prior to Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal came into play as women gained respect within the public sphere. During the time of the New Deal, female activists played a significant role in improving working conditions for women throughout the United States.
              There were many efforts made by women activists during the progressive era. Perhaps one of the greatest movements was the women’s suffrage movement. Making it possible for women to vote, was seen as an enormous step toward gender equality. The fight for women suffrage was set ablaze during the early 20th century. Covered with sweat and battle wounds, the suffragists pressed on with hopes of setting foot on equal ground with men. The effort made by women to acquire the vote, was aided by the creation of a women’s network. This network was a significant tool that supported women’s ambitions (Ware, 5). The women suffrage campaign attracted the attention of millions of female citizens. Shortly after, women’s groups and organizations began to form. They joined the emerging alliance of women suffragists in the United States. The accumulation of women militia marched forward into battle. Several women in particular stood out during the suffrage movement. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton are two of the most recognizable. Prominent suffrage leader Susan B. Anthony believed strongly that women must win the vote in order to have any power within public affairs. She worked alongside Elizabeth Cady Stanton to produce multiple articles such as the Revolution newspaper. With the help of these two women and other suffragists the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution arose. According to the reconstructed amendment, no citizen could be denied voting rights on account of sex. Though the initial proposal was brought to light in 1878, it wasn’t until 1920 that women were granted the right to vote. Prior to having this granted, women were not on par with their male counterparts. They had no political power, and therefore could not affect social politics or reforms. With the vote in hand, women activists set out to further improve their roles in society, specifically their working conditions.

Kashy is so funny. But he is a very good boy. Love him lots ! It seems like just a few days ago I was getting bucked off nearly every day on this horse that was incredibly hard to handle. Though you will never know it now, he has grown up to be a fine gentlemen and a lovely partner that has taken me through so much.

Took this at a stable I was considering boarding my horse at. They made jumps for all the big horse shows in the area. Really neat stuff!

Maybe my barn will make some cool jumps like these! Love the colors as well.

Nothing is more enchanting than letting your horse take you flying through the waves and over the sand.  Although it was his first time seeing the ocean, he impressed me with his bravery. This is my horse who used to refuse to walk through puddles. Great day, it was truly an unforgettable experience.

Love is constant, like the owl that hoots throughout the night.
Like the star that twinkles, bright.

Love enlightens, it guides us into light,
it holds it kisses it is all things right.

Love does not question, what art thou?
Love knows who he is, and who he cannot live without.

Love is everything, to me, to you.
Love is what pulls us through.

Where would I be, without your love?
What would be true, what would I speak of?

Your heart that pounds, so constantly,
your lips that kiss, so gingerly.

Your words, your touch, your smile, your eyes,
all is true, nothing a disguise.

Kiss me again, tomorrow, tonight,

hold me closer, let our love ignite.

If only I could learn to do everything right. If only....

‎"If people are truly, madly, deeply in love with each other, they will find a way.”

Read that, and stop being sad. I love you. I'm not going to lose you. We WILL find a way, because forever is a long time, and I plan on spending it with you.

Christmas break is here! This is so exciting! I can do whatever I want when ever I want with no homework to come home too!
My horse was clipped a month ago, yet has grown back all his hair already. Quite depressing. Why can he just stay unhairy?
