What a great day in history for women! Nov 9, 2011

 1893  Passage of a referendum made Colorado the first state to grant women the right to vote. 

 

1911  Marie Curie became the first multiple Nobel Prize winner when she was given the award for chemistry eight years after garnering the physics prize with her late husband, Pierre. (She remains the only woman with multiple Nobels and the only person to receive the award in two science categories.)

1916  Republican Jeanette Rankin of Montana became the first woman elected to Congress.

2000  Hillary Rodham Clinton was elected to the U.S. Senate from New York, becoming the first first lady to win public office.  

In Christian music, there is a great line, ‘may all who come behind us find us faithful.’ It is applicable to us as women. We can never take for granted the liberties we enjoy won for us by courageous and persistent women.

The question is, where will we take womanhood in our generation?
