Women suffrage march in New York.

Justice is all about treating people fairly. Social justice is the idea that people are all equal and entitled to basic human rights.

"We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the United States, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever." ~Susan B. Anthony, Declaration of Rights for Women, July 1876

Susan Brownell Anthony civil rights leader played a pivotal role in the century Womens' Rights Movement to introduce women's suffrage into the United States and had a prominent role in New York's anti-slavery movement.

Wow. To think this took place only 2 years before my own mother was born!  Suffrage March. Fifth Avenue, NYC. 1917.

Suffragists parade down Fifth Avenue, 1917 Today marks the anniversary of the amendment giving women the right to vote - we still await the right to parity on the wage-earning dollar - after.
