Bad Romance: Women's Suffrage

This very well-done parody/tribute to a Lady Gaga song and video is one of the reasons I make sure to vote whenever I can. I learned about the women's suffrage movement in school, at an all girls school that was founded four years before British women were granted limited voting rights (married women only, and only local elections). Full voting rights for women in the UK did not come until 1928. Less than 100 years ago!

In the USA, right now, there is another battle being pitched. Bodily autonomy and equal pay are still political footballs to be kicked back and forth instead of the fundamental protected rights they should be.

Rosemary, thank you for posting this. I've put the link on a women's social networking site I belong to...plus my blog, too, with a link back to yours.
