It was more than 70 years in the making. From 1848 until 1920, some women willingly faced all kinds of opposition for a cause in which they believed - the right to vote. They came from different backgrounds and their methods varied, but most of these women shared at least one thing in common: they refused to give up. They gave speeches, organized events, filled petitions, and spent time in jail. The March issue is devoted to a look at some of the women (and a few men!) who stand out and stood up for a cause that often made them the focus of angry personal attacks, ridicule, and scorn. From Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, they dedicated their lives to making sure that all women had a voice.
