My sister-in-law's grandmother, Lillian Delpero, was born before the 19th amendment was ratified, and before women had the right to vote. She's 96 now and filled out her ballot to cast her vote for Hillary Clinton.
Lillian's life journey is the American experience.

As a side note, I'm happy to report that my daughter, who is 19 years old, is casting her first vote for Hillary as well. A nice bookend in the progress of the human condition.
As a reminder of why this election is so important, this is what it looked like when women tried to win the right to vote about the time Lillian Delpero was born ...
Unfortunately, there are many women who (sadly) will vote for Hillary's opponent. They're doing this for many reasons, but mostly because they don't understand how we live in an environment where a woman who is as experienced and qualified as Hillary still has to fight against a damaged man who's not her equal and, quite frankly, doesn't deserve to be on her stage.
