94 years ago, the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed, ensuring women have the right to vote.
Almost a century later, women now make up more than 50 percent of the registered voters in this country. That's a good thing for Democrats because women tend to vote for our party's candidates. In fact, it was women who ensured President Obama was elected both times.
