Is This was Women’s Suffrage was Like?

It’s fascinating to watch the three steps forward two steps back tidal wave of social change. I can’t help but think this is what it was like with women getting the right to vote… This slow, building tide. One state here, one state there, until the whole country finally realized:

1) The world’s not going to implode when something “changes”
2) You can’t stop the tide of a cause that, well, actually makes sense

Hate may have a long lifespan, but it’ll eventually topple in the face of human goodness and decency. That’s what I want to believe, anyway.

It’s why I’m a fantasy writer.
