Hail to Suffragette Heroes & the 19th Amendment
The right to vote is one century old.
My heroes are the women, so bold
to fight for the right that should be a given.
Not sure the men I’ve ever forgiven.
The heroes are many:
the top 10 — my heroes.
Without their courage,
females voting would be zeroes.
Here are their names, alphabetically listed below,*
creating a movement for all to admire —
Not giving up in the face of adversity
until they reached their heart’s desire!
The next election is very crucial,
so be sure to vote in person or by mail .
Exercise your right so bravely won.
Honor the heroes: don’t fail
