  1. What wonderful photos, I got a little choked up looking at them.
    And that woman voting for the first time has some bad ass style.

  2. hello there,
    I just found you last night and I think my life just got a whole lot better for doing so!
    Loving your work,
    Lisa x

  3. Makes me appreciate being a woman even more!

  4. all i can say is you rock. you really do.

  5. thanks so much for posting these!!!

  6. i'm taking a "women and politics" class this semester and it reminds me of how much there's still to be changed. i fear that people think women's equality has been achieved, just because in most countries women have the same legal rights as men.


don't be shy, please leave me a comment!
