The topic of women's suffrage has come up over dinner on several occasions recently as both my older kids are studying various aspects of the world women's suffrage movement in history at the moment. At just 16 and 13 it is completely inconceivable to them that women were ever denied equal rights. It just seems ludicrous to them.
I hope one day when they are sitting with their own children at dinner, that generation will be both shocked and surprised that in the 21st century people used to be denied the right to marry simply because of their gender. The time for that is long over. I'm ecstatically happily married to my best friend and can't believe anyone should be denied that right simply based on the bigotry of others.
